CALE has two annual awards.  The first is for the best paper written by a junior scholar.  The second is a lifetime achievement award.  The terms for each award are available on the website (here).

The deadline for nominations this year is August 15, 2019.  Nominations are to be submitted by e-mail to CALE’s Corporate Secretary and Treasurer, Professor Jula Hughes of the University of New Brunswick.  The paper must be submitted in an anonymized format (so that the author will not be identified to the selection committee) and the lifetime achievement award must use the nomination form.  This form was circulated to the CALE mailing list and is also available on request from Professor Hughes.

The selection committee for both awards is Pooja Parmar, Darrel Pink and Stephen Pitel.
