The Springfield Heritage Awards are presented annually to recognize significant achievements in stewardship of the physical and cultural heritage of the geographic area we now call Springfield, Oregon.
Presented by the Springfield Historic Commission and the Springfield History Museum, these awards recognize a broad array of stewardship activities that increase awareness, appreciation, and support an inclusive perspective of local heritage.
Award recipients are selected by the Mayor. The Mayor’s award will be informed by input from a jury that includes representatives of the Historic Commission and the History Museum Committee and members of the community selected by the Mayor. This is a recognition award promoting exceptional commitment and achievement; no monetary awards are associated with this program. Up to 3 awards per category may be presented each year, at the discretion of the Mayor with input from the jury.
The City invites nomination submittals starting on June 9, 2022. The extended deadline for nomination submittals is 12:00pm on Friday, August 5th.
