Do you have a project about British Columbia history?
Each year, the British Columbia Historical Federation offers two awards for student works relating to the history of British Columbia. The work must be written by a student registered in a university or college in British Columbia.
Since 1989, the British Columbia Historical Federation has awarded a scholarship for student works. In 2001, the scholarship was renamed to honour the late archivist and historian, William Kaye Lamb.
What makes this award unique is that the students do not have to be history majors — they could be in urban planning, or architecture, anthropology or theatre. It’s about the historical aspect to the work.
What types of work qualify?
Submissions do not have to be essays. Any type of work may be submitted, including an essay (1500 – 5000 words), website, video or film, performance, podcast, artwork or installation. The work must have been created by a student for a course taken in 2021 at a university or college in British Columbia.
What’s the deadline?
The deadline for submissions for the 2021 award is 1 March 2022.
