Do you know a Vermont teacher who has inspired you and who deserves statewide recognition? For 10 years, the Vermont Humanities Council has honored such teachers with the Victor R. Swenson Humanities Educator Award, which recognizes a Vermont educator in grades 6 through 12 who exemplifies excellence in the teaching of the humanities. VHC seeks nominations for the 2012 award. Nominating letters are due June 15. The recipient receives a $1,000 check and public recognition at VHC’s fall conference.

Nominations may be made online at www.vermonthumanities.org or mailed to Vermont Humanities Council, Victor R. Swenson Humanities Educator Award, 11 Loomis Street, Montpelier, Vermont 05602 or e-mailed to info@vermonthumanities.org. To learn more, visit vermonthumanities.org.


Williston Central School’s Voyager House and the Williston Historical Society will host “The Williston History Roadshow” at the Old Brick Church on May 31 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The event will follow a format similar to the PBS program “Antiques Roadshow,” in which attendees are asked to bring a maximum of three antiques from their home for appraisal, with a suggested donation of $5 per object appraised.

Appraisers include Kyle Scanlon of Vermont Estate Services and Ethan Merrill of Merrill’s Auction Gallery on James Brown Drive. Merrill, the brother of Voyager House social studies teacher Aron Merrill, is also a judge on the upcoming History channel program “Picked Off.”

The event at the Old Brick Church will also feature a display of the Historical Society’s collection of local artifacts, with information about each item provided by WCS students.

Proceeds from the event will help support future collaborations between WCS and the Historical Society.
