2024 Humanities Awards

Every year Arizona Humanities honors and celebrates outstanding contributions to the humanities in our state. Since the inaugural awards in 1990, Arizona Humanities has recognized individuals who have advanced the humanities in Arizona through their scholarship, leadership, support, and advocacy. We encourage you to nominate an individual or organization who is advancing the humanities in your community!

Nominations are reviewed by a panel of AH board members and community partners. Award recipients participate in a video interview, celebrate with friends and family in an awards reception in the fall, and receive a $2,000 cash award to further their work in the humanities.
