The Digital History Award

Digital History has established itself as an important new way of delivering exceptional and heretofore hidden information about Alabama's past.  The Internet and social media tools make it possible for many individuals and entities to gain attention and authority for their contributions to increased understanding about the history of Alabama. 

​The AHA Digital History Award recognizes excellence for large or small digital history projects that make contributions to promulgating Alabama (state or local) history.  The next award will be given in 2018 at the annual meeting.
