Distributor: Kissimmee Community
Access Television

Running Time: 16 minutes

Audience: Citizens of Kissimmee

Description: Community information video designed to encourage citizen involvement in historic preservation.

  • Preservation Award — The Florida Trust for Historic Preservation, Preservation Education Media Category

“Through my job as Grant Administrator for the Department of State’s Historic Preservation Community Education Grants, I have been fortunate to review numerous projects that educate about historic preservation. The City of Kissimmee’s video, A Vision for Kissimmee, is by far the best example of a city’s efforts to bring the benefits of historic preservation to its citizens. This is a video I will turn to when potential grantees ask for suggestions about community education projects that will inform their citizens about the restoration of historic structures.”
