For the first time in its sixteen-year history, the 2020 Hiett Prize will be presented during an online gala that will feature, in addition to Prof. Zena Hitz, several past Hiett winners, including the 2019 recipient Dr. Jessica Hooten Wilson, who will present the award to this year’s winner.

Prof. Hitz will share what the achievement means to her, why she dedicated her life to the humanities, and how the prize will further her mission to pursue the greater good. The annual gala is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet one of the great minds of the humanities.

During the ceremony, Hitz will be presented with the famous Pegasus award designed by local artist Brad Oldham.
