Nominations for Ladysmith Heritage Awards

The Ladysmith & District Historical Society is calling for nominations from the community for the fifth Ladysmith Annual Heritage Awards.

The awards recognize individuals, businesses and societies that have played a key role this past year (2023) through their actions or initiatives toward preserving or promoting local heritage.

“These awards are a way to show appreciation of the role people or organizations play in preserving our heritage, to recognize how this heritage characterizes our community, and to emphasize the importance of this heritage to attracting visitors to our community” says Quentin Goodbody, President of the LDHS.

There are two award categories: (i) Restoration of a heritage building, place or artifact, and (ii) Commitment displayed by an individual or organization (society or business) to preserving and promoting local heritage.

Anyone can submit a nomination, including nominating themselves, their business or their society.

Applications are being accepted until December 30, 2023

Award recipients will be announced during February’s BC Heritage Week.
