THE ARIZONA ARCHAEOLOGY ADVISORY COMMISSION'S 1998 AWARDS IN PUBLIC
ARCHAEOLOGY in honor of 1998 ARIZONA ARCHAEOLOGY AWARENESS MONTH
"Discover the Road to Ruins!"

The Governor's Archaeology Advisory Commission (Commission) is sponsoring
the twelfth annual "Awards in Public Archaeology."  These awards are
offered by the Commission as part of the 1998 Arizona Archaeology Awareness
Month celebration (March 1-31, 1998) and are presented to
individuals/programs that have contributed time and energy to promoting the
protection and preservation of, and education about, Arizona's
non-renewable archaeological resources.  

These awards can include a variety of people and groups (e.g.,
professional archaeologists, avocational archaeologists, legislators,
corporate groups, sensitive developers, Site Stewards, relevant tribal
programs, museum programs, state/federal agencies programs, etc.), that are
worthy of recognition for their public service endeavors.  These endeavors
must have helped to protect or preserve archaeological sites, or to raise
public awareness of the sensitivity of archaeological sites.  (Please note
that, unfortunately, nominations for state/federal/tribal agencies should
not include cultural resource compliance programs for which the agencies
are mandated to operate, even if those entities are doing good jobs.)

Award recipients will be honored in a special ceremony at the 1998
Arizona Archaeology Expo, March 14-15, 1998, at the Deer Valley Rock Art
Center in Phoenix.

If you know of an entity that deserves special recognition for their
efforts in Arizona archaeology, please complete a nomination form and mail
it to Ann Howard, Public Archaeology Programs Manager, State Historic
Preservation Office, Arizona State Parks, 1300 W. Washington, Phoenix,
Arizona, 85007.
	
Nominations must be postmarked by January 12, 1998.  For more
information, or to obtain a nomination form, please contact Ann Howard at
