KATH Writing Awards 2014

The Kentucky Association of Teachers of History sponsors four writing awards each year. Entries are considered by a panel of historians invited by the KATH Board to serve as judges. The winners, who will have written the papers during the 2013-14 academic year, will be honored with a cash prize and certificate at the annual KATH meeting in October 2014. Please consider sponsoring your students’ work for these awards:

  • Anita Sanford Tolson High School Writing Award

    for a high school student who has written an outstanding paper on a history-related topic but the topic should have been determined by the writer (length of 1,500 to 2,500 words plus at least eight references including primary sources)

  • Thomas D. Clark Undergraduate Student Writing Award
