Honor Awards

Held annually, the Missouri Preservation Honor Awards recognizes projects and persons who have made achievements in the field of historic preservation and contributed to our overall mission of preserving place and community for future generations of Missourians. The top award is the Rozier Award, presented annualy to an individual who has made significant achievements in the field of historic preservation in Missouri — it is our lifetime achievement award. The Osmund Overby Award is presented to a published work(s) that contribute to the documentation and interpretation of Missouri's architectural history. The McReynolds Award is given to individuals or groups who have made significant achievements in the field or are in the midst of a long-term preservation project, creating synergy in the field of historic preservation. The Preserve Missouri awards recognize outstanding efforts and projects around the state. Categories include, but are not limited to: Commercial Revitalization, Institutional/Civic Building Restoration, Neighborhood Revitalization, Residential Rehabilitation, Historic Landscape Preservation, Rural Preservation, and Preservationist-in-Action.

Population(s) Served

Instituted as a media campaign in 2000, the program is aimed at calling attention to endangered statewide historic resources threatened by deterioration, lack of maintenance, insufficient funds, imminent demolition and/or inappropriate development. Formerly known as Most Endangered, the program was renamed in 2015 as ‘Places in Peril’. The re-branding came as a means of highlighting the selected public nominated places because becoming the ‘most endangered’ was not a contest. Once the historic resource is gone, it’s gone forever. By publicizing these places we hope to build support towards each property’s eventual preservation.
All properties considered for the list, which is decided upon by a volunteer group of preservation professionals and enthusiasts, are nominated by concerned individuals.

Population(s) Served

The Annual Statewide Preservation Conference is Missouri Preservation’s largest educational opportunity and biggest event. Going on its 23rd year, the Statewide Preservation Conference travels to a different city in Missouri every year with a goal of highlighting all the history the host town has to offer. The conference brings together architects, developers, preservation specialists, members of historic preservation commissions and various trades persons from across the state and the surrounding area for 3 days of networking, trade show, and educational opportunities. We even offer AIA Continuing Education Credits for most sessions and certificates of completion.

Each year we host the Legacy Awards, which recognizes local achievements in preservation in the host city. This awards ceremony is held in conjunction with a dinner and tickets are available to the public.
