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. Nominations for the 2017 Heritage Awards are now being accepted. Please review the criteria and submit your nomination by Friday, December 2, 2016. Awards will be announced in February 2017.

Nominations can be dropped off at Delta's Recreation and Community Centres as well as at Delta Municipal Hall and online to committeeclerk@delta.ca.
