2022 History Makers Awards Ceremony

The Oregon Historical Society’s annual History Makers Awards & Dinner recognizes contemporary individuals and organizations that are positively shaping the history, culture, and landscape of Oregon. These living leaders represent the best of what Oregon has to offer, paving the way through scientific discovery and exploration, innovation in business, communications, the arts, or service in their communities.

This year, we are proud to recognize the accomplishments of trailblazing public servant Margaret Carter, visionary business leader and philanthropist Sid DeBoer, trauma care pioneer William B. Long, M.D., and beloved cultural icon the Oregon Symphony.

All are welcome to watch a livestream of the awards ceremony portion of this annual fundraising event and make a donation in honor of the History Makers. The ceremony will include profiles of each History Makers produced by KGW as well as remarks from each of our four History Makers. To receive an email with a link to the livestream, register for the event here. A direct link to join the livestream will also be posted to this page in the coming weeks.

Proceeds from the event provide vital support of our mission to collect, preserve, and interpret Oregon’s past in ways that are relevant and accessible to all. To read full biographies on our 2022 History Makers or to learn about sponsorship opportunities, visit our History Makers program page.
