Do you know of great rehabilitation projects? A special person or group who should be recognized for a significant preservation effort? An effective program, event, or campaign that increased awareness of historic preservation?
Each year the Ohio Historical Society’s Ohio Historic preservation Office recognizes achievements in historic preservation by presenting awards in two categories: Public Education & Awareness and Preservation Merit. Public Education & Awareness Awards recognize activities that increase public awareness of historic preservation at the local, regional, or sate level. Preservation Merit Awards are for projects that preserve Ohio’s prehistory, history, architecture, or culture.
People, organizations, businesses, and public agencies are eligible for he awards. Anyone may submit a nomination for the awards. A selection committee comprising members of the governor-appointed Ohio historic Site Preservation Advisory Board and Ohio Historic Preservation Office staff will choose recipients in each category. Nominations must be posted-marked by June 1.
