The annual Richard Evans Award recognizes the outstanding long-term contribution by a group or organization of volunteers to the preservation and promotion of Anglophone heritage in the province of Quebec. Every year QAHN honours the chosen recipient at its annual general meeting and awards banquet in June.
QAHN invites its members as well as members of the public to nominate groups or organizations of volunteers, including those not affiliated with QAHN, that have consistently exhibited dedication leadership in working towards the preservation and promotion of Quebec's Anglophone heritage.
The recipient of the Richard Evans Award is chosen solely on the strength of the nomination documents received by the selection committee.
The following criteria should be taken into consideration:
- The significance and quality of the nominated group’s contribution to the preservation and promotion of Anglophone heritage in Quebec.
- The degree of personal dedication in the field of heritage preservation and promotion, as demonstrated by the candidate organization’s level of volunteerism.
Be sure to include a concise description of the scope and significance of the nominee’s work in the heritage field, providing a few specific examples. If you wish, you may provide two or three letters of support.
All nomination forms and supporting letters must be submitted before 5 p.m. on the last business day of March.
Documents may be sent by mail to:
QAHN, 400-257 Queen Street, Sherbrooke, QC J1M 1K7;
