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. Both award winners 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 any project, as long as it focuses on the history and archaeology of the County, is 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
The project should contain sound information and be presented clearly and attractively. The purpose of the project and its target audience should be made clear; indications of success would be helpful. Original ideas and projects that have a ‘wow’ factor will be especially welcome.
A panel of senior SLHA post holders will judge nominations. Their decisions 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 are usually presented at the Annual General Meeting of the Society, held in October. However, the timetable for the award process may be affected by coronavirus restrictions.
The closing date for the 2021 awards is 30 September 2021
