SLHA has an awards scheme to recognise the endeavours and achievements of local groups, societies and individuals in the fields of Lincolnshire history and archaeology.
There is one annual award called The Flora Murray Award, consisting of a cheque for £200 and a framed certificate. An occasional award can be granted at the Society's discretion called The SLHA Award for Excellence. This consists of a framed certificate. Winners of either award receive free copies of the Society’s journal and magazine for one year.Eligibility
ProjectsSuggested projects suitable for entry to the scheme are published books, exhibitions, lectures, educational resources and village trails, but other projects, as long as they focus on the history and archaeology of the County, are also welcome.
Applications for an award must be made on an application form by either the applicant directly or by a third party with the potential award recipient's permission. Application forms can also be downloaded from www.slha.org.uk
A panel consisting of senior SLHA post holders will judge nominations. The panel will consider the following criteria in its judgement:* Factual content: is the material factually correct, well-chosen and relevant to the theme and purpose of the project?
* Style: is the material presented in a clear and coherent fashion and the information well organised?
* Presentation: is the publication (or other material) well designed, attractive and colourful?
* Appeal: Is the project original or unusual? Does it represent a huge achievement or have a ‘wow’ factor?
* Success: How successful has the project been or likely to be in terms of interest shown and active involvement by the ‘target audience’? Has it met its stated aims?
Applicants should consider these criteria when promoting their project on the application form, although it is recognised that not all applications can be judged equally against all criteria.The decisions of the judging panel are final. The Society reserves the right not to make any awards in a particular year.
The Flora Murray Award and SLHA Awards for Excellence will be presented at the Annual General Meeting of the Society, normally held in October.
The closing date for the 2018 awards is 30 June 2018.
