About the Awards



 IMG 8011

Behringer-Crawford Museum in Devou Park is serious about its mission as “a center for the collection, presentation, study and enjoyment of our natural, cultural, and visual and performing arts heritage” – and serious about its exhibits that capture Northern Kentucky’s story.

But the museum has always had a good sense of fun, too. And perhaps nothing symbolizes that good humor more than the museum’s taxidermic prize, the two-headed calf. So, in the spirit of both serious devotion to the mission of the museum and BCM’s reputation as a fun place to visit, we present our tenth annual “Two-Headed Calf Community Service Awards.”

Typically awards celebrate one exceptional achievement. The fastest runner wins the race. The most talented violinist is awarded the gold medallion. Behringer-Crawford Museum’s Two-Headed Calf Awards recognize that very often, true excellence rests with those who demonstrate achievement beyond a single contribution. Just as two heads are better than one, so, too, is the service of the people these awards honor.
