Distinguished Student Presentation Award

The Society of Mississippi Archivists (SMA) welcomes student presentations at our 2022 Annual Meeting, which will be held virtually on April 21-22. To celebrate excellence in student presentations, the SMA Distinguished Student Presentation Award recognizes an exceptional presentation by a student at the Society of Mississippi Archivists’ Annual Meeting. This honor is awarded to an individual currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate studies with a desire to work in libraries and archives. The award recipient will receive a certificate and a $100 honorarium following the conference.

Presentations will be reviewed by a selection committee who will determine the recipient. In the event that none of the presentations meet the requirements of the honor, no award will be given this year.

To submit a proposal, go here. To qualify for consideration, please self-identify as a student under professional title.
