Awards & Grants
 

Dear Members,

The Middle Atlantic Archaeological Conference solicits nominations for two awards that recognize the outstanding efforts of those who advance archaeological knowledge in the Middle Atlantic region:  Lifetime Achievement Award and Holmes-Gardner Medal.  The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes the efforts of an individual (or may be split between two or more individuals) who has spent a minimum of 20 years making consistent and regular contributions to archaeology in the Middle Atlantic region. This individual may either be a professional or avocational archaeologist. The new Holmes-Gardner Medal, named after archaeological pioneers William Henry Holmes and William Gardner, has yet to be awarded but will recognize excellence in Middle Atlantic archaeological scholarship by archaeologists who have made enduring contributions to research and practice. 

Please consider nominating deserving archaeologists for these awards, to be given at the March 2017 Annual Meeting in Virginia Beach.  Details can be found at  http://www.maacmidatlanticarchaeology.org/Awards.htm.  Note that there is no nomination form.  The Lifetime Achievement Award nomination requires a thorough letter (usually from a group of nominees) that addresses all award requirements.  The Holmes-Gardner Medal requires a packet of information and supporting evidence.   

The deadline for submitting nominations to the committee for either award is January 31, 2017.  Contact us if you have questions or need assistance. 

Sincerely,

Carole Nash (nashcl@jmu.edu), Liz Crowell (lcarchaeology@gmail.com), and Heather Wholey (hwholey@wcupa.edu), MAAC Awards Committee
