Astronomy announces new award

Astronomy magazine will award $2,500 annually for outreach excellence.
May 2006
March 21, 2006
Starting in 2006, Astronomy magazine will present an annual $2,500 award to an astronomy club or organization for excellence in astronomy outreach activities. The "Out-of-this-world" Award focuses on ongoing public programming — not one specific event — as conducted by any educational or civic organization.

The prize will reward a group's sustained efforts to involve its local community in the science and hobby of astronomy and will be awarded for use in future public programs.

Entry forms and submission rules are available for download here. Applications and material must be postmarked by July 15, 2006.

Astronomy promotes the science and hobby of astronomy through high-quality publications that engage, inform, entertain, and inspire. In addition, it strives to empower local astronomy organizations that help bring out-of-this-world wonders to their communities.
