Sent on behalf of a colleague, please forward as appropriate. Thank you!:

The Society for History in the Federal Government (SHFG): < http://www.shfg.org/ > awards eight prizes that recognize and encourage excellence in the study of the history of the U.S. federal government. The awards and prize competition, judged by professional historians, archivists, documentary editors, curators, and preservationists, is intended to draw attention to outstanding and praiseworthy work. The Society hopes that the result will be increased appreciation of both the federal government's history and the efforts of those who, through a variety of methods and media, explore that history. Each prize consists of a framed certificate to be presented at the Society's annual spring meeting, held in the Washington, D.C.

Each year the Society awards six prizes for various types of historical publication and work furthering the understanding and history of the federal government: the Henry Adams and George Pendleton Prizes (Books), the James Madison and Charles Thomson Prizes (Articles or Essays), the Thomas Jefferson Prize (Documentary Edition or Research Aid), and the John Wesley Powell Prize (Historic Preservation or Historical Display).

The other two prizes, The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Award and the Ellen Trautman Award, recognize service to the profession not necessarily associated with publication, historic preservation, or public interpretive display. The most prestigious service award, The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Award, given every three years, recognizes outstanding contributions to the study of the federal government history. A recipient of this award does not need to be a society member. The Mary Ellen Trautman Award recognizes outstanding service to the Society.
