Golden Shield Heritage Awards

Conceived in 2012 by the National Heritage Council. The awards were motivated by the rationale that heritage has a significant role to play in promoting social cohesion and community development. Awards such as these, therefore, give acknowledgement and expose the depth of the South African heritage which is unique and diverse. Champions of heritage are honoured for the selfless great work that they do in their communities to preserve and promote our heritage. 

“Thank you to the National Heritage Council for the opportunity to be recognised for the small contribution that me make in our communities. We feel so appreciated. This encourages us to do more.”
