If you know of a person or an organization deserving to be recognized for their dedication to historic places, public history or a heritage interpretation project in Richmond, nominate them for the annual Richmond Heritage Awards. Richmond’s Heritage Commission is encouraging the public to submit nominations before the deadline of Friday, April 27, 2018.
The Richmond Heritage Awards recognize the accomplishments of individuals and organizations in the conservation of historic places, and education and awareness about Richmond’s diverse heritage.
Anyone can submit a nomination to the Richmond Heritage Commission. Simply complete a one-page nomination form describing the nominee and their contribution.
Some of the ways an individual or organization may earn recognition are:
- preservation, restoration, rehabilitation or adaptive reuse of a historic place, such as a building or structure, or conservation of a cultural heritage landscape;
- promotion or awareness of local heritage through education, outreach or advocacy; or
- contributions to local knowledge of heritage in public history or interpretation projects.
Historic buildings, cultural and natural heritage landscapes, artifacts, and oral and written histories are all rich resources that contribute to Richmond’s shared community identity today.
The annual Richmond Heritage Awards will be presented on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at the Richmond Regional Heritage Fair’s Closing Ceremony at Richmond Cultural Centre located at 7700 Minoru Gate.
The Awards Jury will include members of the Richmond Heritage Commission. All decisions of the jury are final.
