New Hampshire Humanities extends its deep gratitude to the following board members who finished their terms on our Board of Directors last month: Steve Barba, Kathy Gillett, Inez McDermott, and Dan Will. We’re pleased to welcome five new board members from all corners of the state and hope you’ll have the opportunity to meet them in the coming year.

New Hampshire Humanities is pleased to announce the 2018 recipients of our New Hampshire Humanities High School Book Awards, awarded annually to high school juniors who have demonstrated genuine curiosity about history, literature, languages, or philosophy and who hope to deepen that knowledge in college.
