AWC Cultural Award


The award is offered every three years to an American citizen over 17 for a specific project or activity that contributes to cultural life in Denmark and is completed within a year.

The award was first given in 1970 and for a number of years was called the Arts Award. The name changed in 1986 to include the broader range of possibilities that the term Culture covers.

We have been able to help a great variety of cultural activities in the fields of science, literature, visual and performing arts crafts and furniture design. We have supported research and continuing education in many ways. This is the only award our club gives that will benefit Americans and Denmark directly.
