The ARARA Conservation and Preservation AwaRD
The CAP Award was established by ARARA in 1991 to recognize significant contributions to the conservation or protection of rock art.
Consideration will be given to an individual, group, organization, or agency that has taken a leadership role in significantly contributing to protect or preserve a major rock art site or series of sites from an identified and serious destructive impact, or to cause legislative, educational, administrative, or other action that significantly promotes rock art conservation or protection.
The recipient's efforts to incorporate the participation and advice of Native Peoples into their work will be valued.
The CAP Award can be made to more than one recipient within the same year and a recipient need not be a member of ARARA.
The CAP Award may be made to an individual for work that was a normal part of his or her employment or professional activities; similarly, it can be made to a group, organization, or agency for work that was a regular part of its operations.
A CAP award recipient can be honored more than once for additional conservation and/or preservation efforts.
Nominations will be accepted any time prior to January 31 by the Awards Committee Chair.
An award recipient will receive a $500 award and certificate at the ARARA conference.
Not for public description:
Nominations will be forwarded to the Conservation and Preservation Committee Chair for assessment. The CAP Chair will make a decision at least one month before the conference and communicate this decision to the Awards Committee Chair and the ARARA Board who has the final decision making approval.
