The Excellence in Historic Preservation Certificate and Medal set recognizes outstanding individuals and organizations that promote historic preservation in myriad ways. The recognition honors individuals and groups that have saved and/or preserved their local history, including restoration of buildings, collections, significant objects, monuments, cemeteries, and other important artifacts. It may be presented to a group or business that rescues a historic structure to establish it as its headquarters. The medal and cream-colored 8.5" x 11" certificate may be presented to DAR members and non-members by chapters and state societies. It does not require any formal application/approval.
