The Pedagogical Prize of 2021 was awarded to Nelly Laitinen, first archivist at the Society for Swedish Literature in Finland. 

The prize winner was announced at a digital ceremony at the NCK’s Spring Conference in February. In her speech, NCK’s chairperson Karin Thomasson hightlighted Nelly Laitinen’s continuous work to develop digital outreach methods for archives. Karin Thomasson also stressed that regardless of the format, what is striking about Nelly Laitinen’s work is how she strives to make the people behind the documents come to life. She continuously proves how archives through active engagement can help individual life stories speak from the sources and make everyday life from the past come through. This approach also helps her to address difficult and complex subjects such as the Finnish civil war. Nelly Laitinen is rewarded for her continous work of proving the archives relevance in today’s society.
