Coalition To Protect Maryland Burial Sites

Periwinkle Awards


Every year the Coalition designates one or more persons to receive its Periwinkle Award in recognition of outstanding personal effort and perseverance in helping to save an historic cemetery from neglect, desecration or other illegal activities.  The periwinkle plant (vinca minor) was chosen as the name of the award, as the plant had been typically used in 18th and 19th century cemeteries throughout the state of Maryland. Periwinkle is a durable, virtually maintenance-free flowering ground cover often planted in cemeteries as an alternative to grass. The recipient receives a monetary award as well as a framed certificate commemorating the award.

When the Periwinkle Award Committee is appointed they will be searching for deserving individual or individuals, organizations, businesses, local government, and projects for our 2014 Periwinkle Award. If you believe someone is deserving of this award continue to check back until the announcement is made that the search is on.
