The Linguistic Society of America invites nominations for a newly approved award, the Excellence in Community Linguistics Award. This award recognizes the outstanding contributions that members of language communities (typically outside the academic sphere of professional linguists) make for the benefit of their community’s language. The contributions made by awardees may be varied, including, among other things, documentation work with a linguist as a consultant and efforts towards language revitalization. The language may be one spoken anywhere in the world; nominees are not limited to people working in North America.

More information can be found at the following link:

The deadline for nominations is July 1.
