The number one soap for over 1,000 consecutive weeks, The Young and the Restless is used to winning awards and breaking records. This year, however, the CBS soap receives an honor for something very different -- promoting conservation of historic buildings.

The Young and the Restless continues to add to its trophy case. The Los Angeles Conservancy has announced the recipients of its 27th Annual Preservation Awards, which recognize outstanding achievement in the field of historic preservation.

"This was a particularly competitive year with a number of excellent projects," said Linda Dishman, the Conservancy's executive director. "We applaud the winners, as well as everyone who works so hard, year in and year out, to preserve greater L.A.'s cultural heritage."

Over the past year, The Young and the Restless has introduced millions of people to preservation. In a storyline involving a development that threatened historic buildings, The Young and the Restless had key characters fight for preservation as a way to revitalize a community. According to the Conservancy, "This one bold stroke conveyed the value of historic resources to an entire nation through popular culture, a vital element in creating a true preservation ethic."

The Conservancy will present the awards at a luncheon on Thursday, May 8 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. Tickets are $125. For more information please call (213) 623-2489.
