2022 Preservation Awards

Published in Announcements, Press & Media.

Biennially, the Providence Preservation Society recognizes projects, people, and initiatives that contribute to the organization’s mission and vision for Providence. Awards are selected by an independent jury and the PPS Board of Trustees.

As an organization that celebrates a range of interventions, from small to large, we encourage everyone to consider submitting an award nomination. This year’s nominations are due July 15. Finalists may be notified of site visit requests in late August. Awards will be assigned by an expert jury based on the information and images submitted and the totality of the submission.

A celebration of preservation excellence will take place November 15 at an awards dinner at the recently restored Beatrice hotel.  We hope you will join us!
