Each year, Preservation Iowa seeks to honor individuals, organizations, projects, and programs whose work demonstrates a commitment to excellence in historic preservation. In doing so, we hope to inspire others to take action to preserve, protect, and promote historic resources.

Project awards will be presented at the 2021 Preserve Iowa Summit, to be held virtually, June 3 and 4 (more event details to come). Winning projects will receive awards from Preservation Iowa and will be highlighted on the Preservation Iowa website and Facebook pages with press releases to go out to each winning nominee’s community.


Nominated projects must have been completed within the geographic boundaries of
Iowa and completed within a time frame extending from January 1, 2019 and April 15,
2021. Incomplete projects will not be considered. Nominations can be made by/for
individual owners, corporation, development groups, or organizations. Property
owner(s) must be notified, before submission of property/project, so they can be
notified of the nomination status.
