Victorian Community History Awards

This week I was asked to represent YPRL, together with representatives of the three library services behind Wikinorthia: documenting life in Melbourne's north, to attend the Victorian Community History Awards 2009 at Parliament House. The site was entered for an award.

Information Victoria sponsors the awards, an annual event that recognises the importance of local and community history. Visit the website to download a list of the current and past winners.

Other local projects submitted for the 2009 awards included:
Nillumbik : Now and then by Marguerite Marshall, photographs by Alan King with Margurite Marshall
Chinese Settlement in Whittlesea by Arthur B.W. Yong
Ivanhoe: from the beginning
Nominations for 2010 are now open.
