The League of Snohomish County Heritage Organizations began as the idea of Brent Lambert, Snohomish County Heritage Planner. The group was officially formed in 1983 and, in an effort to encourage and honor heritage projects in the county, an annual awards program began, named after county volunteer and local history writer Helmer Malstrom who died in 1985. For 25 years the award was presented at the League’s annual meeting and luncheon held in Snohomish. From 2012- 2014, the presentation has been part of the League’s Heritage Day events, which were held in Stanwood at the Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center building. This year (2016) the Malstrom Award luncheon returns to the Waltz Building in Snohomish to celebrate over 30 years of this program.

The Malstrom award has been given for historical publications, the preservation or rebuilding of historic structures and sites, the creation of new museums, various special exhibits and digital projects. (There is no monetary award). Beginning with 2014, the award was separated into two awards, one for publications (books, calendars, etc) and one for projects (exhibits, historic preservation projects, events, etc.)
