TAM Award Nominations

Now is the time to nominate your programs, exhibits, publications, and awesome volunteers for recognition at the 2021 TAM Awards of Excellence ceremony, to be held Wednesday March 17, 2021.  You will find the updated and revamped guidelines HERE and the nomination form HERE. Your Awards Committee has been hard at work updating both of these documents, and we want to make you aware of a few key points:

·Again this year, THERE WILL BE NO DEADLINE EXTENSION! The final and only deadline will be January 15, 2021. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS to this date! 

·NEW in the Digital Media category is a BLOG sub-category. 

·The Volunteer category is broken into three subcategories and now requires a 500-word limit narrative, rather than filling out the nomination form. That document can be sent to awards@tnmuseums.org

·Temporary exhibits that opened in November or December of 2019 are eligible for nomination for the 2021 awards. This includes holiday themed exhibits or programs.

If you have questions, please feel free to email your area representative, found HERE, or Tori Mason, Awards Committee Chair, at tmason@nashvillezoo.org. We look forward to seeing all the awesome things our Tennessee institutions are doing! Good luck!

How to Write a Winning Award Nomination

Each year, TAM members submit many remarkable award-winning nominations, highlighting the hard work Tennessee museums and their staff do every year.  The nominations annually awe and amaze the awards committee with their reach, creativity, impact and effort. Committee members are dedicated to ensure fair and unbiased judging of all Award of Excellence nominees that get submitted each year. In order to do so, certain criteria are required of nominees to help with that process.  Follow this link for some hints to help you with that procedure.
