Student & Young Professional Fellowship
In an effort to bring fresh and diverse voices to the study of Historic Preservation and Main Streets at RevitalizeWA, the Washington Trust has created a fellowship to support first-time attendance by students and young professionals with interest in gaining professional exposure to the fields of preservation and downtown revitalization, as well as by practitioners and independent scholars in the field. For more information and to apply, download the application. Submittals are due February 10th, 2017.
A variety of sponsorship and naming opportunities are available at RevitalizeWA. Please download our prospectus and registration form here.

Donate to the Silent Auction!
Each year the Washington Main Street Program hosts a silent auction at the conference with proceeds benefiting the Main Street Mentorship Program. The auction is a great way for Main Street Communities, small businesses, and professionals to promote their community while donating to a program that enables communities across the state to connect with Main Street experts.
What can you donate? A basket filled with highlights from your community, gift certificates to restaurants, tickets to special events, memorabilia from your favorite Washington attraction, Washington wine and beer, get creative!
If you have something to donate, please complete the online donation form by April 17th and ship the item to the Washington Trust or bring it to the conference!
