Deadline: 29 July 2016
The application deadline has been extended for this year’s Volunteers for Museum Learning Award, presented by The British Museum and The Marsh Christian Trust. The award celebrates the contribution of volunteers in museums, galleries and heritage sites all over the United Kingdom, recognising their achievements and dedication as well as the innovative ways they are engaging with the visiting public.
There will be twelve regional winners, each of whom will receive a £500 cash prize. Additionally, an overall national winner will receive a further £2,000. The awards will be presented at the British Museum in September. If volunteers are too modest to apply themselves, museums are very welcome to apply on their behalf. To find out more and to submit an application please visit the British Museum website here.
