Call for Nominations

Deadline: April 14, 2023

Governor's Arts Awards recognize outstanding contributions made by individuals, organizations and communities to the cultural life of our state. While these contributions are usually made unselfishly, it is important to take the time to recognize and thank people for outstanding achievements.

Please take a moment to consider individuals, organizations and communities that deserve to be acknowledged with a nomination for a 2023 Governor's Arts Award.  Nominations can be made by an individual, group, organization or business.
