CRS and AIA Cleveland celebrate National Preservation Month each May by recognizing outstanding historic preservation projects from the region during our annual Awards Program. Projects are nominated by the community and reviewed by a jury of historic preservation experts and certified architects.

Nominations are due February 28, 2023 by 5:00 pm via Dropbox.

Nominations for projects that pose a conflict of interest with the 2023 jury members will be held for consideration in 2024 when the jury members rotate and no conflict is in place. Those situations include, but are not limited to, the following: (i) the juror is related to a submission as a member of the design firm, development team, construction contractor or subcontractor, or as a client commissioning the work to a nominee, (ii) the juror is a relative of or has a close personal relationship or friendship with the nominee that makes him/her unable to act in an objective fashion, or (iii) there is a personal affiliation so close that the appearance of a conflict of interest may be assumed by the general public.
