Deadline looming for Juneau history grants

There is still time to submit an application for the Juneau History Grant!

Students, teachers, organizations and individuals of all ages are encouraged to apply for up to $1,000 to assist them in the completion of a project which will document, preserve or improve access to the history of the Juneau-Douglas area. Projects might include live performances, public presentations, research papers, recordings, videotape, use of computers or other media.

The 1980 Juneau Centennial Committee set aside an endowment to help fund projects each year. Each year, up to $2,500 is available to be divided among successful applicants.

A committee will read and judge proposed projects on the following criteria:

• Historical value to the community

• Can be accomplished within the stated timeline

• Realistic and balanced budget

• Historic accuracy and objectivity, as indicated by proposed sources and methodology; and

• Will produce a tangible product to be shared with the community

Typed applications must be post-marked or hand-delivered to the Juneau-Douglas City Museum by 4:00 pm, May 16, 2005. The finished projects will become the property of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum; however, copyright will remain with the author(s). Projects must be completed by May 2, 2006. Applications are available at

The Juneau-Douglas City Museum is a program of the Juneau Parks and Recreation Department. For more information call 586-3572.
