Ogallala Quilter's Society
This award recognizes quilters who are using their quilting to benefit their communities, whether making quilts for those in need of a warm hug, teaching quilting to those who need to learn a skill, or meeting other quilt related community needs. Nominations may be individuals or groups, but either the individual or someone in the group must be a member of Ogallala Quilter's Society. The honoree or honorees will be recognized at the Friday night dinner during the 2019 festival and presented with a $100 check to be used as needed for their project.
Nominations deadline extended to March 1, 2019.
