Williams Award receives a prize of $100, free conference attendance (for next year’s conference), a one-year membership in the Society of North Carolina Archivists, and publication of their award-winning paper in SNCA’s peer-reviewed journal.

Please include “Williams Award” in the subject line. Proof of NC residency must be submitted for students attending a graduate program outside North Carolina.
