Details: The Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards recognize individuals, businesses and organizations for outstanding efforts on behalf of Oregon heritage and raise the quality of heritage-oriented activities. Nominations are encouraged for exceptional and meritorious work. Special consideration is given to the development of new ideas, approaches and innovations.
Deadline: The postmark deadline for nominations is Friday, January 25, 2019.
Awards will be presented on April 25 at the Oregon Heritage Summit in Medford by Heritage Programs of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, which houses the Oregon Heritage Commission and the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office.
The Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards honor those that have made the most of available resources and skills and are given for exceptional and meritorious work by organizations, businesses or individuals. Nominations are encouraged for organizations and projects of all sizes and heritage purposes and for volunteers and professionals from all heritage sectors. The Sally Donovan Award for Historic Cemeteries will specifically be awarded for excellence in work preserving Oregon historic cemeteries.
Action over and above the ordinary call of duty is an award prerequisite. Special consideration is given to the development of new ideas, approaches and innovations. The mere fulfillment of routine functions does not justify an award. Previous award winners will be honored a second time only if their new work represents a major improvement above the level for which they were previously honored.
