Call for Nominations - The Katherine Palmer Award 2013

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 will be presented at the annual Fossil Expo of the Mid-America Paleontology Society in Iowa City, Iowa, being held this year from April 5-7 in the Sharpless Auctions Facility (

Please consider nominating someone whom you believe deserves such recognition. Anyone, including other amateurs, is welcome to submit a nomination. Neither nominators or nominees need to be members of PRI. The nomination should include (1) the 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 Tuesday February 26, 2013, to me at the signature address below (email preferred).
