NAPA has extended the deadline for submissions for its Student Achievement Award, which recognizes student contributions in the area of practicing and applied anthropology. The award honors students who have excelled in these fields and provides opportunities, particularly for students who have worked on team projects and in applied contexts and to be recognized during the AAA annual meeting.
Awards include three cash prizes: $300 first place; $100 first runner-up; and $50 second runner-up. Additionally, students will be awarded a certificate of recognition and will be acknowledged at the NAPA Business Meeting during the 2014 AAA meeting in Washington, DC.
Papers must be no more than 25 pages in text and footnotes, excluding bibliography and any supporting materials. Papers must be a product of work relevant to practicing and applied anthropology including, but not limited to: examinations of community impact, contributions to identifying and improving local/ service needs, or communicating anthropological theory and methods to non-anthropologists in collaborative research settings including non-profit agencies, communities, business and industrial organizations.
The deadline for submission is Friday, November 14, 2014. For more information on eligibility, judging criteria, or to submit a paper, please see the Student Achievement Award page or contact NAPA Student Representative Marie Schaefer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
