Reminder: 2011 Mormon History Association Awards

By February 3, 2011

This is a reminder that the deadline for submitting an entry for any of the annual awards from the Mormon History Association is fast approaching (submissions for each category must be received by February 15, 2011 at the respective email addresses indicated in the linked post).

For those students out there, please do submit your work for consideration in the Juanita Brooks Undergraduate and Graduate Paper Awards—someone needs to dethrone Matt Bowman.


The Mormon History Association (MHA) is pleased to announce two award competitions for exceptional student work exploring the history of those religious traditions originating with Joseph Smith, Jr. The Juanita Brooks Undergraduate and Graduate Paper Awards will be given to the best unpublished papers written in 2010 by an undergraduate and graduate student, respectively. Students are eligible to submit one paper for consideration. The winning graduate student essay will be published in the Journal of Mormon History, pending editorial review and appropriate revisions as determined by the Journal editor.  (Provided the winning entry has not been submitted elsewhere for publication.) All submissions must be sent electronically (as either a  “Word” or “PDF” document) to J. Spencer Fluhman at  Submissions should include a cover sheet detailing the student?s biographical information: name, department, institution, and undergraduate or graduate major, etc. Submissions must be received by February 15, 2011, to be considered. Awards will be presented at the MHA annual meeting in St. George, Utah, in May 2011.

  3. Would a paper written by someone who has received a BA but is currently applying for a masters work qualify as an undergrad or a grad paper?

  4. BH: Go ahead and send an email asking Fluhman what you think you should do. I imagine you can submit it as an undergrad, since you were an undergrad in the year 2010, but I don’t know for sure.
