Nominations now open for preservation awards

Nominations are open for the 2003 National Preservation Awards, sponsored by the National Trust for Historic

Preservation. Winners will be honored at the National Preservation Conference in Denver, Colo., Sept. 30 through Oct. 2, 2003.

These efforts include citizen attempts to save and maintain important landmarks; companies and craftsmen whose work restores the richness of the past; the vision of public officials who support preservation projects and legislation in their communities; and educators and journalists who help Americans understand the value of preservation.
