The Manning Award for Excellence in the Public Presentation of Historic Places was created in 1993 to recognize and celebrate the work of individuals, communities, and organizations for their work in preserving and presenting this province’s history and heritage.
The award is named for the late Bill Manning, a former Parks Canada Superintendent of Newfoundland and Labrador’s National Historic Sites. During his career Manning strengthened and expanded the sites in the province with a vision of greater community involvement.
Divided across four categories, community, provincial, national, and international, the awards are targeted at groups for the scale and reach of their projects. Past winners range across a variety of projects from the more traditional museums and statues to new and innovative such as cell phone walking tours and boat races.
The awards, which are held in March each year, have the patronage of the Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador. Nominations are accepted from any individual, group, or community.
Nominations are due by November 30th.
Over 100 projects, people, and organizations have won Manning Awards from across the province. We encourage you to visit these sites and enjoy the imaginative presentation of our historic places.
