Wouldn't it be great to be young again and to be entering amateur astronomy! Now is the time to nominate qualified young people for the Astronomical League's Horkheimer Youth Service Awards for 2017: Horkheimer/Smith and Horkheimer D’Auria Youth Service Awards, the Horkheimer/Parker Youth Imaging Award, and the Horkheimer/O’Meara Journalism Award.
If you know a League member, 18 years or younger, who has brought amateur astronomy to your club or to the public through outreach, presentations, writing, observing, or imaging, please consider nominating that person for one of the four Horkheimer Awards.
This year only, the deadline for the suite of Horkheimer Awards is February 15, 2017 (and not March 31, as it has been in previous years).
In addition to receiving a check for $1750, the 2017 Horkheimer/Smith Youth Service Award winner will be treated to a trip to NEAF on April 8.
If you are a club officer, nominate them. If you don't, no one else will! Complete information about each award can be found at www.astroleague.org/al/awards/awards.html
