The Board for the Kentucky Association of Teachers of History (KATH) is seeking volunteer judges for the 2018 Thomas D. Clark Undergraduate Writing Award. The award is one of four student writing awards that will be presented at KATH's annual conference on September 15th at the University of Louisville. Volunteer judges will determine the recipient of this year's Thomas D. Clark Award, which honors the best undergraduate research paper on a United States history topic researched and written while attending a Kentucky higher education institution during the 2017-2018 academic year. The recipient receives a $100 prize and a certificate during the annual conference. For further information on the award and criteria, see the  judging rubric posted here (.doc file)

Since 1976 KATH has served as a service organization for those concerned about improving the quality of history education in Kentucky and offers opportunities to network and to experience professional development events, especially through our annual conference. In this way we hope to improve the scope and quality of teaching history throughout Kentucky. KATH is unique in that it is not controlled by any one agency or institution. We rely on volunteers and believe in collaboration and cooperation among all levels of instruction.

Your contribution as a scholar in judging the research paper submissions is highly appreciated by KATH - and the many award winners and their faculty who have been celebrated these past several decades. Please contact the Thomas D. Clark Undergraduate Writing Award 2018 Committee Chair, Dr. Ashley Sorrell (, to volunteer for the Thomas D. Clark Undergraduate Writing Award.
