PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Historical Society says three people and two organizations will be honored for their efforts in preserving the state’s history.

The groups and individuals will be presented with the Governor’s Awards for History on Saturday in Pierre.

The award recipients are Barbara Johnson of Aberdeen, Steve Olson of Watertown, Harl Dalstrom of Omaha, Neb., The Outdoor Campus of Sioux Falls and the Whitewood Public Library in Whitewood.
