2017 Lowell Annual Awards for
Historic Preservation and Cultural Heritage
LOWELL, MA — Lowell National Historical Park and Lowell Heritage Partnership are seeking nominations from the community to acknowledge the contributions of organizations or individuals in the areas of historic preservation and cultural heritage. Superintendent Celeste Bernardo stated that, “These awards give voice to community members and organizations who want to honor those who help preserve and interpret Lowell’s diverse history and heritage.” The award recipients will be announced at the eighth annual Lowell Preservation and Cultural Heritage Awards Reception as part of Doors Open Lowell in May.
These two award categories represent the important nature of the Park’s dual mission to “preserve and interpret the nationally significant historical and cultural sites” in Lowell. In each area, awards may be presented to nominees in two categories: one from a student enrolled in middle school through college and one from the broader community. “"These awards recognizing excellence in preservation and heritage mark a high point in the year for the community," said Paul Marion, president of the Lowell Heritage Partnership. "This is part of our stewardship of the unique asset that is Lowell's history."
Nominees should represent an individual or organization that has demonstrated significant contributions of time and effort to project participation and leadership and activities should be voluntary and non-sectarian.
