Public Outreach Project Award

ASEH will present the next Public Outreach Project Award in 2020. This award recognizes environmental history projects and programs that engage the public beyond the academy; help the public appreciate the role of the environment in the shaping of broader social, political, economic, and cultural issues; and/or have measureable impact on communities.

Eligible nominees include films, exhibitions, historic preservation, archaeology, community programs, and other similar work. Scholarly articles and books are excluded. The project should have been presented or initiated (if it is ongoing, such as a website or blog) between January 2018 (when our last award was selected) and the fall of 2019.

Nominations may be made by anyone, including those associated with the project. Nominations may be made for projects within and outside of the historical community and are not confined to work involving ASEH members.

How to Apply:

E-mail a description of no more than 500 words, explaining how it engages the public and advances understanding of environmental history. The description can include links to the project or links that further explain the project. Submissions from around the world are welcome, but the applications must appear in English.

This award will be given next in 2020; check this website in 2019 for detailed instructions on how to apply.
