Nominations sought for cultural award

The award, named for its first recipient, is given every two years to honor a person or organization who has made significant contributions to arts, heritage or humanities organizations.

The recipient also should have had a recognizable civic impact, demonstrated leadership in community and cultural affairs, contributed through voluntary pursuits, and been involved culturally with educational institutions.

Nominees can come from any community in Yamhill County. 

The award was established in 2017 when it recognized Marilyn Worrix’s many years of civic contributions to McMinnville, the county and the state, as well as her handmade books and other art. The second recipient, in 2019, was quilter and historian Donna Hulett of Sheridan.

Recipients names are engraved on a plaque created by Sheridan artist Monica Setziol-Phillips, which is displayed for two years in the winner's community.

Funding for the award and celebration honoring the recipient comes from donations, which can be made online through the YCCC website, yamhillcountycultural.org, or by mail to YCCC, P.O. Box 493, McMinnville, OR 97128.

The deadline for nominations is April 15.
