2012 Historic Preservation Awards

The Preservation Virginia Awards committee invites members of communities throughout the Commonwealth to nominate potential recipients for Virginia's annual Preservation Awards. The Preservation Virginia Awards have been given since 1971, honoring Virginians who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to preservation.

Awards will be given to homeowners, commercial property owners/developers, architectural firms, local governments, civic organizations, preservation project team members or individuals for efforts that have preserved and protected the architectural and archeological heritage of Virginia. Projects associated with nominations must have been completed in 2010 and focus on the rehabilitation of structures at least 50 years old. Projects must be located within the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Award Categories Include:

Young Preservationist of the Year
Presented to a person or youth group, comprised of members twenty-five years of age or younger, who have made a notable contribution to preservation in Virginia. This award not only recognizes excellence, but also the profound need to attract young people into Virginia's preservation movement if it is to continue to thrive.
