2022 Ohio Archives Month Poster “Top 10” Voting Results

The 2022 theme for the Ohio Archives Month poster is “Ohio’s Healthcare Workers: The True Heart of It All.”

For the past two years, health-care professionals throughout the country have helped us through a pandemic, so health care issues are on the minds of many people. This is our way of recognizing their work. The SOA Advocacy and Outreach Committee invited repositories and institutions across the state to submit their photographs, documents, or other graphical materials that highlight Ohio’s healthcare related materials.

We received submissions on the theme from 23 institutions, for a total of 52 photographs and documents! The submissions were compiled, and 10 images were selected as winners through online voting by you. Thank you to everyone who submitted images. We could never make this poster without your great images!
