(ST. PAUL, Minn.) June 4, 2018— Nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 Minnesota Preservation Awards (MPA), a program of the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota (PAM). The MPAs 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 more than three decades, more than 320 projects across the state have received recognition through the MPA 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. The MPAs 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, July 13th, 2018 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. Awardees of the 34rd annual MPAs will receive special recognition at the 2018 Preservation Alliance Benefit Gala to be held On October 11th at 530 PM CT at the Saint Paul Athletic Club.
