The Washington state Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP) is seeking nominations for the 23rd Annual Awards for Outstanding Achievements in Historic Preservation. This awards program recognizes persons, organizations, and projects that have achieved distinction in the field of historic preservation. Award recipients will be recognized at a ceremony held during National Historic Preservation Month, May 2013. The ceremony is sponsored by the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation and will take place on Tuesday evening, May 14th, at the Fort Vancouver Reserve in Vancouver, WA.
Nominations can be made in one of the following categories: historic preservation planning, historic property rehabilitation projects, career achievement, public education, stewardship, special achievement media and cemetery preservation. A nominee in this last category should demonstrate outstanding career achievement, stewardship, or a completed preservation effort in the context of preserving a historic cemetery.
