Subject: CFP: WWI Aviation History Prizes

League of World War I Aviation Historians

The League of World War I Aviation Historians is sponsoring its sixth annual
student paper competition, which is open to graduate and undergraduate
students. Prizes will be awarded to the best original papers on any aspect
of aviation in the 1914-1918 period, such as personal history, unit history,
citations, tactics, technical development, political ramifications, aircraft
development, or balloon activities. First prize will be awarded $250; five
Honorable Mention awards will receive $100 each. The league will have the
right, but not the obligation, to publish the winning papers in a future
issue of the _Over the Front_ Journal.

Papers should be at least 10 double-spaced pages in length and must be
submitted in manuscript form on white 20# paper, 8.5" x 11" in size.
Printing is to be at least of letter quality or by a clear dot matrix.
Bibliography and source notes are to be placed on separate pages at the end
of the manuscript and are to be in a format according to the style guide of
the student's institution. Each submittal is to include a reference to the
academic institution in which the author is enrolled.

Entries should be addressed to:

Mr. Noel Shirley
727 Swanswood Court
San Jose, CA 95120

Entries will be returned if accompanied by return postage.

Entries must be received by May 31, 1996.
