Do you know a young person who has helped save, revive or steward an historic landmark, or promoted the history of a special place? On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, the N.H. Preservation Alliance is seeking nominations for individuals no older than 25 who have demonstrated a commitment to New Hampshire’s heritage. “Historic preservation activity is often seen as the purview of established practioners or older volunteers,” said Jennifer Goodman, executive director of the Preservation Alliance. “We’re seeking to recognize youth achievements in preservation and to inspire others.”
Check www.nhpreservation.org for nomination materials or call 603-224-2281. Nominees must be no older than 25 years of age, and must be New Hampshire residents or have significant involvement with one or more New Hampshire communities. Groups that include substantial youth involvement will also be considered. Nomination deadline is September 9, 2011. 25 individuals or groups will be highlighted at the Alliance’s annual meeting in October.
The Preservation Alliance is the statewide non-profit organization committed to the preservation of historic buildings, communities and landscapes through leadership, education and advocacy. 25th Anniversary sponsors include: Elizabeth Hengen Preservation Consultant, Fifield Building Restoration and Relocation, and Vintage Kitchens.
