Humanities Nebraska presents the Sower Award in the Humanities annually to honor an individual who has made a significant contribution to the public understanding of the humanities in Nebraska. This contribution can be made through any combination of time, expertise, or resources. The selection committee will consider how nominees have helped enrich the lives of Nebraskans through the humanities: history, literature, culture, philosophy, and all the ways we explore what it means to be human. The 2022 Sower Award in the Humanities is scheduled to be presented this autumn prior to the Governor’s Lecture in the Humanities. The award recipient must agree in advance to attend the event. As in recent years, only individuals are eligible for nomination. Current board and staff members of Humanities Nebraska are not eligible. Nomination Deadline Extended: Now due Friday, June 24.
