SOHS receives award

 Posted: 2:46 PM April 25, 2013

The Southern Oregon Historical Society received an Oregon Heritage Excellence Award for its outreach program "History: Made By You."

SOHS was one of eight organizations to receive the honor.

"History: Made By You" includes partnerships with local groups and community forums to explore topics. The society then taps its collections to build exhibits based on the discussions and displays them around the county. Oregon Heritage Commission officials described it as "an excellent example of a relevant, successful, and unique outreach program that has generated unprecedented community response."

The awards will be presented at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 9, at the Melody Ballroom in Portland.
