The Irving Heritage Society has been presented a silver award in the 34th annual Mitchell A. Wilder Publication Design Awards Competition by the Texas Association of Museums. Created to recognize achievement in graphic design and media production and to encourage quality in public presentations, the Wilder Design Competition drew 36 entries from Museums of all sizes, regions and disciplines throughout the state of Texas.
The Irving Heritage Society entered a video presentation of a dramatization of a tour of the Irving Heritage House titled Irving Heritage House, A House With A History. This was produced in conjunction with Irving Community Television Network in honor of the 2012 100th anniversary of the Heritage House, a Recorded Texas Historical Landmark.
On hand to accept the award during the April Texas Association of Museums conference were Heritage Society members Dwane Crain, Shirley Chowritmooroo, Mary Higbie, Wilder competition coordinator Lacie Ballinger, and Kevin Kendro.
