Dwell magazine contest could help save your favorite Tacoma landmark

Dwell magazine has teamed with Sub-Zero to offer a contest that aims to preserve a local landmark. Readers are encouraged to submit a landmark nomination and explain why it should be preserved. Dwell magazine will then host a popular vote online, a panel of judges will select a winner from the top ten nominees, and a $10,000 donation will be awarded. The contest deadline is Mon., Jan. 30, 2012. For more information, visit http://new.dwell.com/contests/rethinking-preservation .
