Nominations Being Accepted For 2007

Governor's Heritage Preservation Honor Awards

The Arizona State Historic Preservation Office (a Division of the Arizona State Parks department) and the Arizona Preservation Foundation announce the call for nominations for this year's Governor's Heritage Preservation Honor Awards.  This award celebrates historic preservation in Arizona by recognizing the varied contributions of volunteers, professionals, organizations, and agencies to promote the goals of historic preservation.

Ten honor awards are given to those projects, businesses, organizations, educational programs, or individuals who exemplify outstanding achievements in the preservation of Arizona's prehistoric and historic resources.  Selection of award recipients will be made by a panel of judges drawn from the fields of archaeology, architecture, history, and preservation. 

This year, presentation of the awards will take place on Thursday, June 14 at a ceremony to be held in conjunction with the Statewide Preservation Partnership Conference held at the Elks Theater in Prescott. A Grand Award Winner will be selected from the 10 winners and announced at the lunch.
