Distinguished Service Awards--2016

Congratulations to all of our award-winning County Historical Commissions!

Distinguished Service Awards (DSA) are presented by the Texas Historical Commission (THC) based on documentation provided through County Historical Commission (CHC) annual reports. The DSA award criteria, published on the THC website (located here), are applied to the reporting information. CHCs who document work that satisfies the criteria are given the DSA award.
