For recipients in 2023, cash awards of $500 (and a certificate) will be made in each of the following categories:
Other categories may be added at the discretion of the Manitoba Historial Society.
Please note that the Manitoba Historical Society reserves the right to switch submissions into a different category. Awards will not necessarily be made in every category and multiple awards may be given in the event of a tie.
