The BC History of Nursing Society is the recipient of the 2017 Best Website award.
Each year, the BCHF offers a certificate and cash prize of $250 for the best website on a topic of British Columbia history. The award honours individual or group volunteer efforts in website writing and presentation.
The BC History of Nursing Society’s website, www.bcnursinghistory.ca, honours and respects the history of nursing in British Columbia and beyond. The judges found the website to be informative and complete with blog, links to resources and photographs. The website was accessible on devices and modern in design, working to present nursing history in an interesting and engaging way. Anita Petersen and Lenore Radom were instrumental in realizing the project.
The prize was awarded on Saturday, May 26, 2018 at the book awards gala event in Nakusp as part of the BCHF annual conference. Lenore and Anita were unable to attend the awards evening, and will be presented with the award at a later date.
The Best Website Award recognizes individual or group volunteer efforts in website writing and presentation on a topic pertaining to British Columbia’s history. The Best Website Award is kindly endowed by Ken Mattison.
