*Call for Nominations - The Katherine Palmer Award 2011

Each year, the Paleontological Research Institution recognizes an individual
who is not a professional for the excellence of their contributions. This
award is named for PRI's second Director, Katherine Van Winkle Palmer, who
was an avid supporter of avocational paleontology. The award is presented at
the annual Fossil Expo of the Mid-America Paleontology Society in Macomb,
Illinois, being held this year from April 1-3 at Western Illinois University

Please consider nominating someone whom you think deserves such recognition.
Anyone, including other amateurs, is welcome to submit a nomination. Neither
nominators nor nominees need to be members of PRI. The nomination should
include (1) nominee's full name, address, phone number (and email if
available); (2) contact information of the nominator(s); (3) description of
the nominee's achievements in paleontology, including a bibliography of
papers authored or resulting from the nominee's efforts if appropriate; and
(4) a photo of the nominee if available.

*Please submit nominations by February 15, 2011, to me at the signature
address below (email preferred).*
