Event description

Description

Each year, we provide an opportunity for community members statewide to pitch a historic preservation project at our Virginia Preservation Conference.

Anyone can submit a pitch, including individuals, government agencies, historical societies, historic property owners, etc. in order to compete for $2,000 in seed money at the Virginia Preservation Conference Friday, October 6 at Union Train Station in Petersburg.

Past winners of the Preservation Pitch include The Edith Bolling Wilson Birthplace Museum and Louisa County Historical Society.

Here’s How It Works

  • Think of a preservation project that you are passionate about and believe is deserving of funding. Then, submit a PowerPoint presentation to Justin Sarafin, jsarafin@preservationvirginia.org, explaining why we should select your project (PowerPoint presentations can take only 3.5 minutes to present).

  • The Preservation Pitch committee will review all of the presentations and pick three finalists to present their pitches during a reception at the Virginia Preservation Conference.

  • Reception attendees will vote for their favorite pitch to determine the winner.

Download the form below for complete terms and conditions and instructions for submitting your PowerPoint presentation. Presentations are due no later than Friday, September 8, 2017.

Preservation Pitch Terms and Conditions

Please note: The three finalists chosen to present their pitch are invited to attend the Virginia Preservation Conference free of charge. If additional guests and supporters only wish to attend the Preservation Pitch reception, they must pay the $20 per person guest fee in advance.
