How do I submit a nomination?

AASLH encourages organizations and individuals to nominate or self-apply for the national Leadership in History Awards.  A nominee does not have to be an AASLH member to apply and self-nominations are encouraged (except for the Individual Achievement category). It will take some time to gather the necessary materials for your nomination, so we recommend getting started a few months ahead of the March 1 deadline.

1. Find your state or regional representative and contact them to discuss the nomination:

2. Download and read the nomination instructions for the project you are submitting so you know which materials to gather:

2018 Award Nomination Instructions for Projects or Individual Achievement

2018 Award Nomination Instructions for Publications

3. Submit your nomination form online. Nominations for publications need to send two copies of the book to their state or regional representative, but no other physical materials are required to be mailed.
