These awards are to be presented to buildings, sites, projects, or people that currently do not qualify for a more prestigious award but still deserve recognition. Many owner-executed rehabilitations and business projects might fall into this category. Four to six awards may be given per year.
This award is occasionally presented for outstanding service on the QQA Board of Directors.
The Peg Smith Award originated in 1980 and is given to a QQA member whose volunteer work on QQA projects and programs has been particularly exemplary.
Also instituted in 1980, the Jimmy Strawn Award is bestowed upon someone whose efforts on behalf of the preservation of Greater Little Rock’s architectural heritage are an inspiration to the entire community.
