Gene J. Williams Award

The Society of North Carolina Archivists annually recognizes a paper on an archival topic written for a graduate-level course by a North Carolina student. The award honors the late Gene J. Williams, archivist at the North Carolina Division of Archives and History and at East Carolina University, and charter member of the Society of North Carolina Archivists. The winner is selected each January and the award is presented at the annual Spring conference of the Society of North Carolina Archivists. The winner receives $100, free conference attendance, a one-year membership in the Society, and is published in SNCA’s peer-reviewed journal. Submissions are accepted May through December and should include the Williams Award entry form, to be signed by your professor. For more information, email the SNCA Education Chair with “Williams Award” in the subject line.
