The North Country Living Traditions Awards recognizes individuals, families, or community groups who have mastered traditional arts or customs identified with our region and remain committed to passing them on to future generations. Each fall the Salute to North Country Living Traditions honors the year's Living Traditions Awards recipients with a ceremony that includes audiovisual presentations about each recipient. Some years at the Salute, TAUNY also presents the Evergreen Award.
The North Country Living Traditions program began in 1993 (Name change from North Country Heritage to North Country Living Traditions in 2021). Recipients are featured in The North Country Wall of Fame, TAUNY’s gallery of photographic portraits by Martha Cooper.
In coordination with North Country Public Radio, TAUNY developed the Meet the Master radio series, which includes photographs and audio and video clips for each artist.
