We invite you to consider making a nomination for the 2019 Barnabas McHenry Hudson River Valley Awards. The Awards were launched in 2007 by OSI to honor Barnabas McHenry’s contributions in the Hudson River Valley and to foster future leaders in the region.
The McHenry Awards are grants awarded each year to four exceptional young leaders in the fields of environmental conservation, historic preservation, the arts, and tourism. The awards, of up to $5,000 each, provide financial support for undergraduate and graduate students to pair with nonprofit organizations or college professors and execute exemplary projects in the Hudson River Valley. The project itself may be a summer internship or a yearlong endeavor.
