After three competitive rounds of evaluation, only six finalists were selected from 70 total applicants. The six finalists made public presentations about their work in Denver, Colo., at the 75th annual National Convention of the National Congress of American Indians. After the presentations, three Honors and three High Honors were selected. As winners of this prestigious award their work will receive world-class exhibits in partnership with Google and the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, as well a monetary award to assist in spreading their success story.
