Nominations are still being accepted for Dade Heritage Trust’s 2019 Preservation Awards.
The non-profit will unveil 2019’s Most Endangered Sites list, and recognize this year’s Preservation Awards winners at the historic Scottish Rite Temple, located in Downtown Miami’s Lummus Park Historic District, on Apr. 11.
“Protecting Miami-Dade County’s historic venues is not an easy task,” said Christine Rupp, executive director of DHT. “But despite the challenges, organizations and individuals go above and beyond year-after-year to preserve these historic places that makes Miami such a thriving community. These awards are our way of honoring those who honor the past.”
DHT’s Preservation Awards are open to any individual, organization, business or agency involved in historic preservation in Miami-Dade. There is no limit on the number of nominations that one applicant can submit. Nominations may be made without the knowledge of the nominee(s). Self-nominations will be accepted. Owners of properties, if not the applicant, must provide written consent.
The deadline for nominations is Mar. 18. To learn more visit dadeheritagetrust.
