February 18, 2020 • Page 7 PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota State Historical Society in Pierre is seeking nominations for the annual Governor’s Awards for History and two positions on its board of trustees. The Governor’s Awards include recognition for individuals, organizations, and also a K-12 History Teacher of the Year. People interested in making a nomination should visit www.history. sd.gov or contact the State Historical Society’s awards coordinator Jeff Mammenga at Jeff. Mammenga@state.sd.us or 605-773-6000 to receive the nomination form. The nomination forms are due back to the society by Feb. 24. The nominations will be reviewed by a subcommittee of the society’s board of trustees and the winners will receive their awards during the society’s annual history conference on April 25 in Pierre. “We encourage people who know individuals, organizations, or teachers who have excelled at preserving South Dakota history to nominate them for the awards,” said Jay D. Vogt, director of the State Historical Society. “Nominees need not be members of the State Historical Society. And this year we are pleased to announce that we have both professional and non-professional categories for individuals and organizations.” Extraordinary individuals could be considered for the Robinson Award, the society’s highest honor, recognizing a lifetime of preserving state history. The Robinson is not awarded every year. The Schell Award, selected by a separate panel of judges, is given to the author of the best article in the previous year’s volume of “South Dakota History,” the society’s award-winning quarterly journal. Nominations are also being sought for two members of the society’s board of trustees -- a member at-large and the professional archaeologist. These nominees must be members of the State Historical Society. The incumbents in those positions are David Wolff of Spearfish (at-large) and Richard Harnois of Leola (professional archaeologist). Trustee nomination forms may be obtained at the above information. They are due back to the society by Feb. 28. Group Seeks To Stop Falls Among Older Adults In South Dakota BROOKINGS, S.D. Between 2007 and 2016, South Dakota was ranked fifth in the nation for death from falls among adults ages 65 and older. Beyond the risk of death, a fall can have a significant impact on individuals, families, and communities. According to the South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations, hospital discharge data from 2014-2018 shows the rate of hospitalizations due to falls in individuals age 65 and older is 1,628.8 per 100,000. In 2015, the estimated medical cost of falls across the nation was $95,000 per minute. Organizations across the state recognize the detrimental impact of falls and are taking steps to reduce the risk of a fall among the people they serve. A group of individuals representing Meals on Wheels Western S.D., South Dakota Association of Health Care Organizations, Faulkton Area Medical Center, Service to the Blind and Visually Impaired, Long Term Services and Support, Reinecke Chiropractic, Health Connect of South Dakota, Inc., Sanford Health USD Medical Center, Winner Regional Health, Good Samaritan Society and many more are working together to develop a statewide fall prevention coalition. This group seeks to increase the identification of individuals at risk of a fall and is working to develop a referral structure to connect those individuals with services and resources that may be available. In addition, the group hopes to identify gaps in services MV Shopper M I S S O U R I VA L L E Y CLASSIFIEDS IN PRINT & ONLINE To place your ad call... and resources to ensure all South Dakotans have access to the support needed to reduce fall risk for themselves or their loved ones.
