Northeast Kansas City Historical Society (NEKCHS) is ready to recognize individuals who have worked diligently to renovate properties in the Northeast.

For the first time, the NEKCHS will pick one individual to receive the NEKCHS Preservation Award. Applications are now being accepted.

“The award is to recognize those in the Historic Northeast who have invested time and money to preserve or renovate older properties,” said Dorri Partain, NEKCHS board member. “It’s just a nice way to promote and recognize the preservation of older buildings and homes in the hopes it may inspire others to take on the task and help keep our local history alive.”

Self-nominations and nominations from the general public will be accepted. Nominations must be for individuals who own the property.

NEKCHS members will judge the nominations on the following criteria: significance and uniqueness of the project; impact of the nominee’s project on the community; and degree to which the nominee’s project serves as an example to influence other historic preservation activity in the community.

A complete list of guidelines and requirements is available on the NEKCHS nomination form. Forms are available at the Northeast News, 5715 St. John Ave., Kansas City, Mo., and digital copies can be obtained by emailing board@nekchs.com.

Submission deadline is Feb. 6. The award recipient will receive an engraved plaque during the May NEKCHS membership meeting.
