Archie Green Public Folklore Advocacy Award
Established in 2009 in honor of the preeminent labor scholar and passionate advocate for the discipline of folklore (1917-2009), the Archie Green Public Folklore Advocacy Award is presented by the Public Programs Section of the American Folklore Society to individuals who have made significant contributions to the preservation and encouragement of folk traditions in the United States while operating professionally outside the field of public folklore. The award is intended for living individuals whose work is allied or complementary to our field and has advanced the mission of public folklore. As of 2013, the award carries a cash prize of $500.

Previous Awardees include Tom Davenport, filmmaker and creator of Folkstreams; Jack Loeffler, author and producer, for his cultural and environmental advocacy; and Patty Miller, director of the Basque Museum and Cultural Center in Boise, Idaho.

Use this online form to make a nomination for the next Award.
