2019 Awards of Merit Program and Sponsorship Opportunities

  • The Connecticut League of History Organizations has been providing professional development and networking opportunities for individuals and organizations throughout the state for 70 years.  And for nearly that long, CLHO has also sought to recognize and promote outstanding projects and achievements in the field.   Each year, institutions, organizations, and individuals are invited to nominate exhibitions, books and catalogs, and educational programs, as well as exceptional accomplishments by individuals.  All applications are carefully reviewed by a committee, and as the name implies, formal recognition is based on merit.  

    Awards of Merit are presented each year at a ceremony.  These presentations have traditionally taken place at CLHO’s Annual Conference held in June, but beginning in 2019 the Awards of Merit will be its own special event.  This will allow more time to spotlight the projects and recipients, and accommodate more of their supporters being able to attend.  It also allows CLHO to showcase the member sites that host the event.  The Mark Twain House & Museum and the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, adjacent to one another on Farmington Avenue in Hartford, have graciously offered to be our host sites in 2019.  

    The Awards of Merit ceremony will be held in the Auditorium of the Mark Twain House & Museum and the reception will be held in the Katherine Day House at the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center next door.  Tours of the recently restored Stowe home will be offered during the evening.  The event date is Tuesday, April 16thfrom 5 to 8 pm.  The Awards ceremony will begin at 5:30, immediately following the CLHO Annual Business Meeting. 

    CLHO invites you to become a sponsor for this event!  We offer three sponsorship levels with a variety of benefits for your business or organization.  Details about our Gold, Silver and Bronzesponsor packages are listed below.  If you would like further information or have any questions, please contact Christina Volpe, CLHO Communications and Program Manager, at director@clho.orgor by calling the office at (860) 832-2674.
