Young Archaeologist and Community Archaeologist of the Year Awards
The Marsh Archaeology Awards are now open for applications. The annual awards, supported by the Marsh Christian Trust, showcase excellence in archaeology. This is your chance to recognise the passion and dedication of those you work with or who have inspired you in your archaeological journey. There are four categories available, including the Young Archaeologist of the Year Award. We hope that our YAC Leaders might have one or two dedicated YAC members, or a branch who they would like to nominate.
We also encourage our YAC Leaders to consider nominating their fellow YAC Leaders or Assistant Leaders, those who have been with the YAC for many years or those who have gone above and beyond, for the award of Community Archaeologist of the Year.
Young Archaeologist of the Year Award
The Young Archaeologist of the Year Award is for a young person or group of young people under the age of 18 who have made an outstanding contribution to community archaeology.
Community Archaeologist of the Year
The Community Archaeologist of the Year Award is for an individual who has inspired others to share their love of archaeology.
Nomination is simple, just download and follow the instructions on the nomination criteria document available here: Marsh Archaeology Awards
Then email your nomination to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Last year, two of our YAC members made the shortlist, Rosie from Chiltern YAC and Martha from the Museum of Cannock Chase YAC. They were joined by Jordan who had worked with our friends at CITiZAN. Rosie went on to win the award and they were all able to join us in York to receive their certificates at the CBA AGM
