Dutchess Award

This award honors exceptional contributions by a county resident to the Dutchess County community, and beyond, in the areas of preservation, history, and/or education.

2020

DCHS will be announcing our Annual Award winners if the late summer or early fall of 2020, with a view to having the in-person recognition ceremonies in the spring of 2020, at which point we are hoping that it is safe to have larger gatherings again. Updates will be posted here and on social media. Thank you.
