Get published. Win a cash prize. The Society of Automotive History is now accepting student submissions for the Richard Scharchburg Paper Award.
In order to encourage research and writing effort among university students in the area of automotive history, the SAH confers its annual award for the best student paper in the auto history field. The award is named for Richard Scharchburg, the late Professor of History at Kettering University, eminent automotive historian, and past president of the Society of Automotive Historians. Persons submitting papers must be enrolled at educational institutions (upper-class undergraduate or graduate level) at the time of submission. This competition is international in scope, but papers must be in the English language and not exceed 10,000 words. Papers already published or scheduled for publication will not be accepted.
Submissions must e-mail dated by June 10, 2011. Upon recommendation of the judges, the winning paper will be considered for publication in the Society’s Automotive History Review. The award consists of a plaque and a cash prize of $500.00.
