FEDERAL PARTNERSHIPS IN HP AWARD NOMS SOUGHT

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) and the National Trust
for Historic Preservation are requesting nominations through March 1, 2010,
for the National Trust/ACHP Award for Federal Partnerships in Historic
Preservation.

This award honors outstanding partnerships that advance the preservation of
important historic resources. It celebrates a project or program in which a
federal agency and one or more non-federal partners have achieved an
exemplary preservation outcome. Partners may include Indian tribes and
Native Hawaiian organizations, not-for-profit organizations, individuals,
businesses, state and local governments, and other non-federal persons or
organizations.

Nominations now are being accepted with a submission postmark deadline of
March 1, 2010. Download the nomination form and view highlights of last year’s award
winner here. (Specific criteria for this award are explained on page 5 of the
nomination form. The form can be completed electronically, but must be
submitted by mail.) A jury of preservation professionals from the National
Trust and the ACHP will review the nominations.

Federal activities have a profound impact on our nation’s cultural
landscape. This national awards program provides an opportunity to showcase
an agency’s commitment to a preservation ethic and gain public awareness of
its accomplishments.

Please share this information as widely and quickly as possible. For more
information contact Patricia Knoll, ACHP Awards Coordinator, at
