The Ken Hale Prize is presented in recognition of outstanding community
language work and a deep commitment to the documentation, maintenance,
promotion, and revitalization of indigenous languages in the Americas. The
prize, which usually carries a $500 stipend, honors those who strive to
link the academic and community spheres in the spirit of Ken Hale.
Recipients can range from native speakers and community-based linguists to
academic specialists, and may include groups or organizations. No academic
affiliation is necessary.
Nominations for the prize may be made by anyone, and should include a
letter of nomination stating the current position and affiliation, if
appropriate, of the nominee or nominated group (tribal, organizational, or
academic), and a summary of the nominee's background and contributions to
specific language communities. The nominator should also submit a brief
portfolio of supporting materials, such as the nominee's curriculum vitae,
a description of completed or on-going activities of the nominee, letters
from those who are most familiar with the work of the nominee (e.g.
language program staff, community people, academic associates), and any
other material that would support the nomination. Submission of
manuscript-length work is discouraged. The deadline for receipt of
nominations is May 1st.
The award is presented at the annual winter meeting. Nominations will be
kept active for two subsequent years for prize consideration and nominators
are invited to update their nomination packets if so desired.
