Recognize Youth Accomplishments: The Astronomical League’s Horkheimer Awards 2013!

Now is the time to submit nominations for the Astronomical League's three Jack Horkheimer Youth Service Awards and for 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, or observing, please consider nominating that person for one of the three Horkheimer Service Awards.


Another youth award is more specialized than the others — the Horkheimer/O'Meara Journalism Award. It requires a person who is 8 to 14 years of age to compose a 300 to 500 word essay on any science related topic.


Since the deadline for the Horkheimer Service Awards is March 31, 2013, and for the Horkheimer/O'Meara Journalism Award is April 10, now is the time for potential candidates to send their nomination materials and to complete their essays.


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
