The Albuquerque Historical Society Accolades Program recognizes the contributions of individuals, businesses, groups, and public or private institutions whose efforts bring awareness to and/or contribute to our knowledge of the broad patterns of Albuquerque’s history; with an emphasis on recently occurring commemorative events. The criteria for receiving an AHS Accolade is broad and includes, but not limited to, recognizing institutions or groups that sponsor events to celebrate or raise awareness of Albuquerque history and individuals who raise awareness of Albuquerque history through talks, lectures, or other actions.

To submit a suggestion for an Accolade, complete the AHS Accolade Suggestion Form and submit it. You will be contacted if the suggestion is accepted.
