Inspired by Laurie Kay Sommers and Samuel Seth Bernard's project (see "Questing with Alan Lomax: Michigan's Historic Field Recordings Inspire a New Generation" in Vol. 2 of the Journal of Folklore and Education), Local Learning announces the Lomax 1934 Prize. South Louisiana educators are invited to propose teaching applications using the website developed by folklorist Josh Caffery based on research during his Library of Congress fellowship at the Kluge Center (see http://www.lomax1934.com).
Deadline is June 1 for projects during the 2016-17 school year. Find the application and the Journal of Folklore and Education at www.locallearningnetwork.org.
