Apply Now - 3 Minute Success Stories
The Three-Minute Success Stories event is an opportunity to present your very own preservation success story!
The Three-Minute Success Stories has been a California Preservation Foundation tradition stretching back to the 3rd Annual California Preservation Conference in 1978. While humor often comes to the fore, the program also gives preservationists a chance to present local successes to a statewide audience, sharing a wide variety of preservation experiences in lively and entertaining ways.
Three-Minute Success Stories have told of buildings restored after earthquakes, giant industrial cranes being relocated, enlightening adaptive reuse, modern architecture coming of age, community efforts overcoming all odds to save an important local landmark, and historic places saved from bulldozers at the last moment. Be adventurous!
The application and guidelines are now available so tell your success story with style and humor!
