Prizes and Awards

The Larry Rowen Remele Award

This award was established by the Northern Great Plains History Conference Council to honor the memory of Larry Rowen Remele. A longtime editor of North Dakota History, Remele was serving as council chair at the time of his death in 1988. As a founder of the council, a program coordinator and conference promoter he contributed significantly to the vibrant intellectual atmosphere of the conference. The Larry Rowen Remele Award is granted annually to a person, who in the Remele tradition, has performed outstanding work for the conference.

Undergraduate Student Paper Prize

The Society for Military History Prize For the Best Undergraduate Student Paper in History is a prize for the best undergraduate paper presented at the Northern Great Plains History Conference in 2013. The award is $200 ($100 from the Society for Military History and $100 from the First Division Museum Cantigny), a plaque, and a banquet ticket. The recipient is recognized at the conference banquet.

To be eligible for this award, authors must be enrolled in an undergraduate program at an accredited college or university at the time the paper is presented, to be verified by a statement from the student's advisor or other appropriate departmental official.

If the judges rate two papers in a tie, and one deals with a "military history" topic, that paper receives preference. However, no prize will be awarded if the judges decide no paper meets conference standards of scholarship and length. (See Northern Great Plains History Conference Policy for Session Participants for details.)

Submission Deadline
Papers must be submitted as an email attachment to each of the three judges listed below no later than August 25, 2013. Papers received after that date will not receive consideration. Any copy should be accompanied by a statement from the student's advisor or other appropriate department official verifying that the student is currently enrolled.
