Georgia Humanities, in partnership with the Office of the Governor and the Georgia Council for the Arts, sponsors the annual Governor’s Awards for the Arts and Humanities. These awards recognize and honor individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to the civic or cultural vitality of the state.

From 1986 to 2011 Georgia Humanities recognized local community members and organizations that worked to increase the understanding and appreciation of the humanities in the state with the Governor’s Awards in the Humanities. In 2012, Georgia Humanities joined forces with the Georgia Council for the Arts and the Office of the Governor Nathan Deal to launch the Governor’s Awards in the Arts & Humanities.
