Leo P. Ostebo Wins 2018 AASLH Award of Merit

NASHVILLE, TN—June 2018—The American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) proudly announces that Leo P. Ostebo is the recipient of an Award of Merit for Curation and Directorship of The Leo P. Ostebo Kings Park Heritage Museum. The AASLH Leadership in History Awards, now in its 73rd year, is the most prestigious recognition for achievement in the preservation and interpretation of state and local history.

The museum has been developed, maintained, and cultivated for educational purposes for 25 years, the Leo P. Ostebo Kings Park Heritage Museum's mission is to preserve the town's rich historic past and educate the youth, the community and the public.

This year, AASLH is proud to confer forty-four national awards honoring people, projects, exhibits, and publications. The winners represent the best in the field and provide leadership for the future of state and local history. Presentation of the
awards will be made at a special banquet during the 2018 AASLH Annual Meeting
in Kansas City, Missouri, on Friday, September 28. The banquet is supported by a generous contribution from the History Channel.
         

The AASLH awards program was initiated in 1945 to establish and encourage standards of excellence in the collection, preservation, and interpretation of state and

local history throughout the United States. The AASLH Leadership in History Awards not only honor significant achievement in the field of state and local history, but also bring public recognition of the opportunities for small and large organizations,
institutions, and programs to make contributions in this arena. For more information about the Leadership in History Awards, contact AASLH at 615-320-3203, or go to www.aaslh.org.

The American Association for State and Local History is a not-for-profit professional organization of individuals and institutions working to preserve and promote history. From its headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee, AASLH provides leadership, service, and support for its members who preserve and interpret state and local history in order to make the past more meaningful in American society. AASLH publishes books, technical publications, a quarterly magazine, a monthly newsletter, and maintains
numerous affinity groups and committees serving a broad range of constituents across the historical community. The association also sponsors an annual meeting, regional and national training in-person workshops, and online
training.
