Central Leader - - Sport -

Applications are be­ing called for this year’s Awards in oral his­tory.

More than $1.25 mil­lion has been awarded to over 300 New Zealand oral his­tory projects since 1991 by the Aus­tralian Sesqui­cen­ten­nial Gift Trust for Awards in Oral His­tory.

Around $75,000 is avail­able for dis­tri­bu­tion each year for the record­ing of in­ter­views for oral his­tory projects about the his­tory of New Zealand and New Zealand’s con­nec­tions with the Pa­cific.

The awards are de­cided by a com­mit­tee of oral his­to­ri­ans and ad­min­is­tered by the Min­istry for Cul­ture and Her­itage.

Applications for the 2009 awards close April 30. For more in­for­ma­tion see: http://www.mch. govt. nz/ awards/ his­tory/ oral.html.
