In 2012 the Georgia Humanities Council joined forces with the Georgia Council for the Arts and the Office of Governor Nathan Deal to launch the Governor's Awards for the Arts and Humanities. These awards honor outstanding individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to Georgia's civic and cultural vitality through service to the humanities or excellence in the arts. The awards recognize the value of the arts and humanities in the creation of a thriving economy and their contributions and growth.
