18 Jan Historic Savannah Foundation opens nominations for 2023 Preservation Awards
Nominations are now being accepted for Historic Savannah Foundation’s 2023 Preservation Awards. Each May, HSF celebrates the area’s best preservation projects with a program that recognizes individuals, organizations, and companies who embody and practice excellence in preservation in Savannah and Chatham County.
Historic Savannah Foundation members who have completed a restoration project within the past three years, or who know of a restoration project that may be award-worthy are encouraged to submit a nomination.
Projects must have been completed within the past three years, and entrants must have the consent of the property owner for a nomination. Self-nominations will be accepted. Nominations that were previously submitted but were not selected to receive an award may be revised, expanded, and resubmitted. To be eligible for an award, nominated projects must have adhered to the applicable Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. For more information on these standards, visit www.nps.gov/tps/standards.htm.
- Quality and degree of difficulty of the nominee’s project or effort.
- Degree to which the nominee’s project or effort is unusual or pioneering or serves as an example that influences good preservation practices.
- Demonstrable or measurable impact of nominee’s project on the community.
A jury of local professionals with representation from the fields of architecture, preservation, academia and planning is invited to review nominations for HSF’s Preservation Awards.
Nominations should fall under at least one of the following categories: restoration, rehabilitation, new construction, stewardship, craftsmanship or archaeology.
The deadline for all award nominations is 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 1, 2023. Mailed entries must be postmarked or dropped off at HSF by this date. The application cost is $50 for HSF members. Non-members are asked to join HSF by visiting myhsf.org/giving/general-membership/ prior to submitting the application. Preservation Award recipients will be notified by the end of March.
