Call for Nominations Issued for 2014 Minnesota Preservation Awards 

30th annual awards program highlights top preservation achievements

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2014 Minnesota Preservation Awards, a program run by the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota (PAM). The Awards recognize outstanding projects, groups and individuals that contribute to Minnesota’s preservation accomplishments. From movie theaters to lakeside cottages, office buildings to historic roadside structures, these awards showcase efforts both simple and grand to preserve Minnesota’s historic resources.

Over the past 29 years, more than 300 projects across the state have received recognition through the Minnesota Preservation Awards program. Awards are selected based on the creativity and quality of the project, the dedication of a group or individual, and most important, a positive preservation outcome. A complete list of Minnesota Preservation Award recipients from 1985 can be found on PAM’s website. The Awards recognize significant achievement in historic preservation statewide and celebrate those who have chosen to sustainably reuse and reinvest in our existing built resources.

Nominations, due Friday May 16th, 2014 at 4:30pm CST, can focus on preservation projects or worthy efforts of communities, groups and individuals, completed within the last five years. Awards are given not on the basis of size of investment, but rather on the merit the project provides to its community. Honorees of the 30th annual awards program will receive special recognition at the Minnesota Preservation Awards Gala to be held in September 2014. Date and venue of the gala TBD.

To begin the nomination process, please visit the PAM website at archive.mnpreservation.org.
