The David McCullough Prize for Excellence in American Public History
The McCullough Prize will be awarded annually for great accomplishments in bringing public attention and enthusiasm to American history. The Prize could be given for a book, theatrical performance, a film, museum exhibition, fine art, music or other platform through which Americans have come to better understand our nation’s past. A highly prestigious selection panel has been recruited to select the awardees. A McCullough Prize for Teaching will also be awarded annually to a teacher within our region who has done great work in history, social studies, political science, history, etc.
Stay tuned for updates as we develop the award and begin the process of selection.
