Call for Nominations
Community Invited to Honor Extraordinary Achievement for Two-Headed Calf Awards
BCM is inviting nominations for the museum's tenth annual Two-Headed Calf Community Service Awards. The awards are meant to celebrate the nominees' extraordinary achievement for service to the community, to history or to learning.
For service to the community: Generosity and vision
This award is a tribute to a citizen who has embraced community service not as a singular activity but with a deep commitment to doubling his or her contribution by combining the gift of service with a vision for how the quality of life in our community can be and is affirmatively improved by supporting the arts, education, culture and history that enrich each of us. The honoree's service might take the form of a contribution of his or her time, talent or treasure - or better yet, the sum of all of those. By the example of his or her stewardship and generosity, the honoree is a role model, especially for young people.
For service to history: Scholarship and public service
This award honors a resident of our community who has contributed to the preservation and understanding of our regional or state history, and whose scholarship, in the tradition of Herodotus, captures the past not solely as a matter of scholarship but equally as a matter of public good.
For service to learning: Academic excellence and innovation
This award is open to an individual (a student, a parent, a teacher, a principal, an administrator or a volunteer), a school or even a school district. An auxiliary group affiliated with education can be nominated (for example, a scout troop, single teacher, a teacher and his or her class, or whole school.) The award is meant to celebrate extraordinary teaching and learning, especially in disciplines dear to Behringer-Crawford, such as history or archaeology. The honoree or honorees who receive this award do not only demonstrate academic excellence, though we applaud that; the academic excellence is side by side with an innovative, energetic approach to teaching and learning.

The awards will be presented at a banquet this spring; date to be announced.
