Archie Green Award
Share |

The American Folklore Society’s Archie Green Award is a way for our field to recognize and honor local cultural leaders and workers outside the Society’s membership who have made significant contributions to the expressive life of their own communities. This award is given at the time of the Society’s annual meeting to a person, group, or organization from the community or region in which the meeting will take place. Recipients’ contributions to their community may include (but are not limited to) art-making, mentoring, teaching, advocating, program- or institution-building, and the like.

Each year, members of the local committee planning the Society’s annual meeting select a recipient or recipients of that year’s Award, based on their own extensive local knowledge, relationships, and networks. The recipient will be recognized in person as part of the Society award ceremonies on the opening evening of the annual meeting, and will receive an award certificate and travel support.
