The Preservation Awards Ceremony is the signature event of the 16th Annual Arizona Historic Preservation Conference. In 2007 the Governor’s Awards in Public Archaeology were combined with the annual presentation of the Governor’s Heritage Preservation Honor Awards to become the primary forum for recognition of excellence in historic and cultural preservation efforts in Arizona.
Governor’s Archaeology Advisory Commission Awards in Public Archaeology
The Governor’s Archaeology Advisory Commission (GAAC) is presenting its 31st Annual Awards in Public Archaeology. The Awards are presented to individuals and/or programs that have significantly contributed to the protection and preservation of, and education about, Arizona’s non-renewable archaeological resources.
Governor’s Heritage Preservation Honor Awards

Since 1982, the Arizona Preservation Foundation and Arizona State Historic Preservation Office/Arizona State Parks have collaborated to present the Governor’s Heritage Preservation Honor Awards. These awards recognize people, organizations, and projects that represent outstanding achievements in preserving Arizona’s prehistoric and historic resources.
The mission of the Governor’s Heritage Preservation Honor Awards is to:
    * Promote public awareness of historic preservation in the state of Arizona;
    * Publicly recognize the varied contributions by volunteers, professionals, organizations, and agencies to promote the goals of historic preservation;
    * Identify and recognize educational, community, non-profit, and private-sector heritage projects that demonstrate excellence in design and execution.
The James W. Garrison Honor  Award Winner is selected from the 2018 Honor awardees, and will be announced at the close of the ceremony.
