The Alaska State Council on the Arts has extended the nomination period for this year's Governor's Awards for the Arts and Humanities awards. Nominations will now be taken up until 11:59 pm on Tuesday, November 19. The council said the delay was deemed appropriate on account of widespread storms recently experienced in various parts of the state.
Nominations are being accepted in the following categories:Margaret Nick Cooke Award for Alaska Native Arts and Languages, Business Leadership, Arts Advocacy Award and Individual Artist. Eligibility is open to any individual, organization or institution that has made a significant contribution to the arts in Alaska, with the exception of current ASCA Council members, staff or prior Award recipients.
