University Students win National Park Service’s Charles E. Peterson Prize
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Historic American Buildings Survey, HABS, contest, National Park Service
Contributed By: National Park Service
Website: http://www.nps.gov/history/hdp/jobs/peterson.htm

WASHINGTON: Students from Universities in Arkansas, South Carolina, Texas, and Florida were announced as the winners of the 2010 Charles E. Peterson Prize for the best set of measured drawings prepared to the standards of the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS). The contest is intended to increase awareness, knowledge, and appreciation of historic architectural sites and structures throughout the United States, encourage students to engage in the HABS recording process, and add to the permanent collection at the Library of Congress. The Peterson Prize has to date generated over 5,300 sheets of drawings for the collection, undertaken by over 5,000 students from sixty-eight colleges and universities.

“Winning this award is no easy task,” according to National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis. “The work that goes into each drawing is significant and the attention to detail is critical. By participating in this contest, students not only learn about the nation's largest archive of historic architectural, engineering, and landscape documentation, they add to the important collection of architectural drawings that document our heritage.”

The Charles E. Peterson Prize is sponsored jointly by HABS, the Athenaeum of Philadelphia, and the American Institute of Architects. The annual competition, currently in its 28th year, honors Charles E. Peterson, FAIA (1906-2004), a founder of the HABS program.

The 2010 winners are as follows:

  • First Place ($3,000): University of Arkansas, Fay Jones School of Architecture, Gregory Herman, instructor; E. Fay and Gus Jones House in Fayetteville, Arkansas; student team: Addison Bliss, Chloe Costello, Jillian Jung, Tyler Meenen, Sean Paquin, Anthony Parsons, Matt Poe, Adrienne Presley, Micah Szabo, Ginger Traywick, and Joseph Weishaar. The First Place winners are first-time participants.
  • Second Place ($2,500): College of Charleston/Clemson University, Graduate Program in Historic Preservation, Ashley Robbins Wilson, AIA, instructor; MacColl House, Bennettsville, South Carolina; student team: Bridget O’Brien.
