Harpers Ferry Center won five awards last week from the National Association for Interpretation for the center's contributions to interpretive media.
Of the eleven categories available for submissions, Harpers Ferry Center took first place in three, second place in one, and third in another. First place was earned in the wayside exhibits category for Castle Williams at Governors Island National Monument, in the short video category for the exhibit video “Preserving the Grange,” and in the site publication category for the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail brochure.
Second place was awarded in the poster category for the Great Lakes invasive species poster series, and third place was won in the site publication category for the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail brochure.
The interpretive media awards program has been in place for twenty years and has elevated the visibility of non-personal interpretive media and cognizance of the professionalism involved with this type of interpretation.
