From the MHC website:
The Preservation Awards Program

Massachusetts enjoys a cultural heritage rich in historic resources. The preservation of these resources has revitalized neighborhoods, added to the revenues of cities and towns, and preserved community character. Preservationists, working to protect our historic assets, have maintained the sense of time and place that forms the essence of our Commonwealth. To honor these outstanding citizens, the Secretary of the Commonwealth hosts the Massachusetts Historical Commission's Annual Preservation Awards Program, which is now celebrating its 33rd year.

Projects and individuals may be nominated in the following categories:
Archaeology
Adaptive Reuse
Education & Outreach
Landscape Preservation
Restoration & Rehabilitation
Local Preservationist
Individual Lifetime Achievement
Stewardship


Local historical commissions, preservation advocates and professionals, and the general public are encouraged to nominate deserving projects.
