The Sharlot Hall Museum is now accepting nominations for its annual Sharlot Hall Award. Established in 1984, the Sharlot Hall Award has been presented annually to a living Arizona woman in recognition of her valuable contributions to the understanding and awareness of Arizona and its history.

Named for Sharlot Mabridth Hall, the first woman to hold public salaried office in the Arizona Territory and namesake of the Sharlot Hall Museum, the Sharlot Hall Award recognizes the collective passion and commitment of these women toward preserving and promoting the history and heritage of Arizona, according to a news release.

Whether an author, editor, historian, educator, politician or preservationist, Sharlot Hall Award recipients are noteworthy and include Mary Jane Peace Pyle, Heidi Osselaer, Elisabeth Ruffner, Mona Lange McCroskey, among many others, the release stated.

This year, Sharlot Hall Museum will be presenting two awards — one for 2021 and one for 2022.

Those interested in submitting a nominee are invited to visit for more information and a submission form. Nominations will remain open until May 31, 2023. The Sharlot Hall Award(s) will be presented at a special event in November.
