DC has always been a city at the forefront of civic engagement and this spring the National Building Museum will be honoring three “civic innovators” who are are leading the nation in natural disaster relief, city planning, and clean energy systems at the 24th Honor Awards.  The three honorees this year were just announced and will include the Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon, renown architecture firm Perkins + Will, and the founders of New Orleans Habitat Musicians’ Village – Harry Connick Jr., Branford Marsalis, Anne Marie Wilkins, and Jim Pate.

The 24th Honor Awards is scheduled to be held on May 11.
