Heritage Awards & Scholarship

Heritage Awards

The Heritage Advisory Commission selects recipients for Delta's Heritage Award of Merit and Friends of Heritage Award annually. The Commission accepts nominations for the awards throughout the year to be presented the following year.

Delta Heritage Awards of Merit are conferred to projects, individuals or groups for their contribution in conserving a valuable part of Delta's history. Awards may be granted to urban or rural projects in the area of preservation, restoration, rehabilitation or adaptive re-use and may be considered for their exterior or interior characteristics.

Delta Friends of Heritage Awards are conferred to a project, individual or group who promotes heritage conservation and awareness in the areas of education, publication or advocacy.

Heritage Commission Scholarship

The Heritage Advisory Commission Scholarship is awarded annually to a graduating high school student residing in Delta. This scholarship is provided in an effort to encourage students to display an interest in local or regional heritage, as demonstrated through an original piece of work. The scholarship is valued at $1,000 and is applied to a student's post-secondary studies (valid for all post-secondary institutions, including colleges, universities, technical and trade school programs, art schools, or any other career oriented coursework or program).

The Heritage Advisory Commission recognizes the importance of higher education in our mandate to promote public education and awareness in the area of local and regional heritage, conservation and preservation.
