2019 Esto Perpetua Award nominations are being reviewed and awardees will be notified early May.
2019 marks the 20th year of the Esto Perpetua Awards. The award takes its name from the state’s motto, “let it be perpetual” and for the past nineteen years, the Idaho State Historical Society has recognized people and organizations who have preserved and promoted Idaho’s history through professional accomplishments, public service or volunteerism, and philanthropy.
Since the award was created in 1999, the ISHS has recognized the inspiring local preservation efforts of more than 100 individuals and organizations from throughout the state of Idaho.
