The Governor’s Awards for the Arts are biennial awards presented to individuals, organizations, educators and businesses who consistently strive to better their communities through their commitment to the arts. The council is seeking nominations for the 2017 awards.

There are many whose contributions are highly valued by those who know them, but whose deeds often go unnoticed by most.  

The Governor’s Awards for the Arts are presented by the North Dakota Council on the Arts, Arts North Dakota and the Governor’s Office. Previous recipients have been chosen for their efforts to expand arts opportunities to new audiences, improve the quality of arts experiences, create an appreciation for North Dakota’s cultural heritage and make the arts more central to education and an integral part of community life.

Nominations can be made in the following categories (not all categories may be awarded, and/or there could be more than one recipient in a single category):

*Individual achievement (artist, staff, volunteer, administrator)

*Arts organization

*Arts in education (teacher, administrator, school)

The awards will be presented at a special public event on March 28 at the North Dakota Heritage Center in Bismarck.
