The Nantucket Preservation Trust 2014 Preservation Awards: call for nominations will run now through Friday, March 21st at 5:00 PM. The Preservation Awards honor projects, individuals and organizations that have made a positive impact in preserving Nantucket’s historic character. NPT hopes that the awards will continue to encourage proper preservation work, broaden outreach to the building community, and ensure the protection of the island’s historic resources.
The Nantucket Preservation Trust’s 2014 Preservation Awards program, now in its eighth year, recognizes individuals and organizations for historic preservation related projects, stewardship of island landmarks, sensitive landscape design associated with historic buildings, historical renovations and the promotion of traditional building methods. Nominees are reviewed by The Preservation Award committee and then given to the NPT board for final decisions. Award recipients will be notified in April and announced during Preservation Month in late May via the Nantucket Preservation Trust website. The award recipients are annually honored at the Preservation Awards Ceremony, which will be held on June 26th. By recognizing preservation projects and the work of individuals, property owners, design and construction professionals and organizations, the NPT hopes to encourage proper preservation work and broaden outreach to the community.
The Nantucket Preservation Trust is asking for nominations of an individual or organization that qualifies for one of the following award categories: Architectural Preservation, Landscape, Stewardship, Traditional Building Methods and Historical Renovation. All nominations must include nominee’s name, location of project and how it supports preservation on the island.
