While the Texas Authors Institute of History museum's main goal is to collect, preserve the work of Texas authors, we also educate Texan's through our writing programs. In addition TAIH Board of Directors has chosen to honor those Texan's and non-profits that contribute greatly to the overall education and promotion of Texas authors, writers and reading programs.
A nominating committee has been established to choose winners of each award and to bestow this great honor to them.
2017 honorees are:
Jason Villalba "Outstanding Citizens Award for Promotion of Literacy"
Mike Blakely "Outstanding Social Impact Award"
Houston Writers Guild "Outstanding Texas Non-Profit Award for Literacy"
2016 is the first year for TAIH to honor Texan's and organizations. The inductees into this museum are as follows:
First Lady Laura Bush "Outstanding Citizens Award for Promotion of Literacy"
Billy Dawson "Outstanding Social Impact Award"
Texas Book Festival "Outstanding Texas Non-Profit Award for Literacy"
