The Society for American Archaeology calls for nominations for the 1998 Excellence in Public
Education Award. Eligible candidates are individuals (e.g., teachers, museum educators, 
administrators, interpreters, etc.) who have contributed substantially to public education 
through writing, speaking or otherwise presenting information about archaeology to the public,
or through facilitating institutions and other individuals in their public education efforts. 
Professional archaeologists are considered under a separate category and are not eligible for 
this award. Nominees will be evaluated according to their creativity, leadership and public 
impact. Nominations should consist of a letter identifying the nominee and explaining their 
contribution to public education. Letters may be accompanied by a vita, resume and/or other 
supporting data. Nominations should be sent by December 1, 1997 to Amy A. Douglass, Tempe 
Historical Museum, 809 E. Southern Ave.,Tempe, Arizona, 85282; (602) 350-5105;
