Highlight Your Township’s Preservation Activities through the Community Initiative Award  

The PA State Historic Preservation Office (PA SHPO) is accepting nominations for the Community Initiative Award. Townships whose work embodies the theme of Pennsylvania’s statewide historic preservation plan, #PreservationHappensHere, are encouraged to enter. #PreservationHappensHere is the idea that great preservation activities are happening every day across the Commonwealth, which may or may not be thought of as historic preservation, but nevertheless, need to be discovered, shared, and celebrated! 

There is no formal application or nomination procedure to be considered the award – simply do one of the following at any time throughout the year: use the #PreservationHappensHere hashtag in your social media posts or submit a Preservation Success Story through PA-SHARE. For more information about the award or past winners, please contact PA SHPO’s Education & Special Initiatives Coordinator, Shelby Splain, at ssplain@pa.gov or (717) 787-0772.
