Those who make a nomination are also asked to describe the individual or organization's accomplishments and contributions in the area of historic preservation.
If the project is a building, include the original date of construction.

DCHS will select a jury to review the nominations and select the recipient of then 2013 Historic Preservation Recognition Award of Excellence.
