Current Opportunities

The Society for the History of Children and Youth offers 12 academic awards spanning 8 languages every biennium. The typical cycle for the awards process is as follows: the juries are formed in the late Summer; calls for nominations are circulated through social media during the Fall; deadlines for submission for the previous years publications happen in January; and the announcements are made in the early Summer.  

Questions about the awards process and committees should be directed to SHCY President (Melanie Tebbutt)
