The Museum Association of New York Awards of Merit Presentation acknowledges exceptional programs and individuals who have made the state's museum community richer and more relevant. They reward the innovated efforts of staff and volunteers, and provide encouragement for the development of new and remarkable projects.
The nominations are reviewed by our judges and nominees are considered based on their own merit. Awards are given to institutions or individuals whose projects and work represents outstanding contributions in their category and excellence compared to similar activities throughout New York State.
MANY would like to extend a special thank you to those individuals who reviewed the 2018 Awards of Merit nominations.
