On Monday 16 October the winners of the Victorian Community History Awards were announced. CHS submitted our online project Notables of Collingwood and we are thrilled to announce that we were the winner in the category of Local History Project.
This is the 5th time that our work has been recognised by these awards, having previously submitted entries on churches, plaques, schools, and hotels.
To read about other category winners, and what the judges had to say about the Notables, see this website:
