Congratulate our 2020 Outstanding Achievement Award Winners!

This year, our Annual Meeting will be virtual, but one part of that event won’t change: OLHA will present 10 individuals and organizations with Outstanding Achievement Awards for their efforts to inspire, connect, and educate their audiences in Ohio and beyond.

Because the eligibility period for 2020 ended on July 1, we were able to honor some organizations who made outstanding efforts to adjust their programming and outreach in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, as well as individuals who have served Ohio history and its local organizations for many years.

Please congratulate the recipients of our 2020 Outstanding Achievement Awards!
