NEW THIS YEAR!
Colorado’s Most Endangered Places Scholarship
For the first time, Colorado Preservation, Inc is providing competitive scholarships to cover conference registration for representatives of our Endangered Places Sites. The Saving Places Conference is the largest historic preservation conference in Colorado and the second largest conference in the nation. The theme this year focuses on preservation trades and will provide our Endangered Places a great opportunity to network with preservation professionals, find project contractors, and learn more about preservation techniques.
This year the Saving Places Conference will also have a specific session for our listed Endangered Places. The round table will provide the opportunity for sites to discuss their problems, identify solutions, and discover ways to facilitate a save. A panel of Endangered Places speakers will highlight issues of fundraising, State Historical Fund Grants, creative ways to discourage trespassing & vandalism, ways to save places through historic survey, historic preservation districts, and outreach as well as ways to bring a vacant and deteriorating property into usable condition.
Applications will be accepted until midnight on Monday, December 22, 2014. Awardees will be notified the beginning of January.
The Endangered Places session will take place Wednesday, February 4 at 1:30 pm. All Endangered Places representatives will be able to attend this session ONLY at no charge.
