(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana Landmarks seeks nominations for its annual Cook Cup, a prestigious prize for exemplary restoration of a historic Indiana structure.

The nonprofit organization awards the Cook Cup for Outstanding Restoration to the owner of a historic structure whose revitalization meets the highest restoration standards in method, materials and design and beneficially impacts a neighborhood or community.

Cook Cup nominees may be an individual, corporation or partnership, nonprofit organization or a governmental entity. The restoration must have been completed within the past two years, and the structure must be in active use. Self-nominations are welcome.

Indiana Landmarks inaugurated the Cook Cup for Outstanding Restoration in 2007, when the prize went to the award's namesake family in honor of its transformation of the West Baden and French Lick Springs hotels in southern Indiana. Previous winners have included Richard Ford for the Charley Creek Inn in Wabash, Butler University for Hinkle Fieldhouse, and the Delphi Preservation Society for the Delphi Opera House restoration.

The Cook Cup winner will receive a large, engraved silver cup on April 28, 2018, at Indiana Landmarks' annual Rescue Party in Indianapolis, where a short video produced by Road Pictures will highlight the before-and-after restoration.

Nomination forms are available at www.indianalandmarks.org/cook-cup. The deadline for nominations is Jan. 8, 2018.
