Gold Medal Awards
The American Institute of Polish Culture Gold Medal Awards
The educational mission of the American Institute of Polish Culture focuses on making America aware of the valuable contributions that have been made to the world and in the United States by Poles, Polish-Americans and friends of Poland representing different nations.
The Gold Medal of Honor is an award that the Institute confers on those who have distinguished themselves by their dedication and unwavering service in the arts, education or science and have made a positive impact upon the world. Since 1987 the awards have been presented at the annual International Polonaise Ball, which is the principal fund-raising event of the Institute, and an important occasion in which members and friends can celebrate their communities and Poland’s cooperation with other countries, nationalities, and cultures.
