Honor your Hero: Call for ATHE Award Nominations
Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Whose work has changed your life as an artist, a teacher, or a scholar? This is your opportunity to honor that individual’s accomplishments.
ATHE gives four prestigious awards recognizing the outstanding lifetime or career achievements of individuals whose excellent work has made a sustained and meaningful impact on the fields of educational and professional theatre:
- Outstanding Teacher of Theatre in Higher Education
- Career Achievement in Higher Education
- Ellen Stewart Award for Career Achievement in Professional Theatre
- Leadership in Community-Based Theatre and Civic Engagement
To nominate your hero for one of these awards, write an impassioned letter of nomination and solicit up to ten letters of support. More information on criteria and the details of each award is located on the ATHE website.
ATHE also awards excellence in scholarly projects published in the last year:
- Outstanding Article in a Scholarly Journal
One award can either recognize excellence in an individual project or in sustained excellence of a lifetime body of work. These categories are awarded every other year; in 2015 we will be honoring sustained excellence of a lifetime body of work: Excellence in Editing
ATHE also honors excellence in Playwriting via two awards:
Jane Chambers Playwriting Award (co-sponsored by the Women and Theatre Program)
More information on nomination processes for all awards can be found on the ATHE website.
