NOMINATIONS SOUGHT FOR THE LAWRENCE SMITH MEDAL OF THE NAS

Every three years the National Academy awards the J. Lawrence Smith Medal and $25,000 prize for recent, original, and meritorious investigation of meteoric bodies. The Academy is now accepting nominations for the 2015 award. The three most recent recipients were
Hap McSween, Bob Clayton and Klaus Keil. Nominations will be considered broadly from the study of small planetesimals and are not restricted just to meteoritics. Nominees need not be U.S. citizens nor members of the National Academy. As with many medals, the diversity of previous Smith Medal winners is limited, so nominees from outside the traditional groups would be highly appreciated. Nomination packages consist of a 2 page nomination letter, 2 page CV for the candidate, bibliography listing no more than 12 significant publications, and no more than 3 letters of support. Nominations are due before October 1, 2014 and are submitted on-line at:  https://awards.nasonline.org
