About the Preservation Honor Awards

The Historic Preservation Honor Awards are Hawaii’s highest recognition of projects, organizations, publications or individuals active in preservation, rehabilitation, restoration, or interpretation of the State’s archaeological, architectural, and cultural sites.  The Preservation Honor Awards are designed to recognize achievements in interpreting, preserving or restoring Hawaii’s built environment.

Nominations are considered by a committee of professionals who are invited to serve on the Historic Preservation Honor Awards Committee.

Each nomination is considered on its own merit and not in competition with others.  The Committee reserves the right to select multiple awards or no awards in each category.  Nominations from all counties are encouraged.

Since 1975, the Historic Hawai‘i Foundation has selected historic preservation honor award winners throughout the State of Hawai‘i.
