>>From Leanne Hinton (hinton at calmail.berkeley.edu) 29 Jan 2005:

The Society for Linguistic Anthropology announces two SLA prize
competitions:  The Annual Student Essay Prize and the Sapir Book Prize

Annual Student Essay Prize
The Society for Linguistic Anthropology invites graduate and
undergraduate students to submit a paper on linguistic anthropology.
Graduate student winners will receive $100 and an invitation to
submit their papers for review in the Journal of Linguistic
Anthropology (JLA), and have their names and abstract published in
Anthropology News (AN).  An undergraduate prize will also be awarded
if the quality and number of entries merits it.  Undergraduates will
receive $100, and will be recognized (along with the faculty member
for whom the paper was written) in AN.

Papers will be judged on originality; organization, quality, and
clarity of writing; cogency of argument; contributions to theory with
use of empirical materials; and timeliness.  Papers should be no more
than 45 double-spaced pages, including bibliography, and should be
written using the JLA style sheet.  Papers that have been submitted
for publication, but have yet to be accepted are eligible.  Articles
already accepted or published are not eligible.  Limit one submission
per student. Applicants need not be members of the SLA to apply.
Prizes will be announced at the SLA business meeting at the AAA
Annual Meeting.  Send four copies of the manuscript to Leanne Hinton,
Dept. of Linguistics, 1203 Dwinelle Hall, University of California,
Berkeley, CA 94720-2650.  Be sure to include a cover letter with
submission that includes mailing address, telephone number, email
address and institutional affiliation, and specify whether it is a
graduate or undergraduate submission.  The first page of each paper
should specify paper title, but should not include author's name.
Faxed and e-mailed submissions will not be accepted.

Deadline for submission is March 15, 2005.

Edward Sapir Prize
The Edward Sapir Book Prize was established in 2001 and is awarded
in alternate years to a book that makes the most significant
contribution to our understanding of language in society, or the ways
in which language mediates historical or contemporary sociocultural
processes.  The SLA invites books with conceptual and theoretical
focus, as well as ethnographic and descriptive works.  Single-or
multi-author books -- but not edited collections -- are eligible.
Books published in the last three years are eligible.  Self nominations
are encouraged.  Authors or nominators should send a substantive letter
of nomination and published reviews, if available, as well as a copy
of the book to Leanne Hinton, Dept. of Linguistics, 1203 Dwinelle
Hall, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720-2650, before
December 31, 2005.  Authors may also request that the publisher send a copy of the
book.  A committee designated by the president of the SLA will evaluate
all submissions and choose prizewinners. Winners will be announced and
prizes will be awarded at the SLA Business Meeting during the 2006 AAA
Annual Meeting.

Last year the prize went to Robert Bringhurst for his 3-volume opus,
_Masterworks of the Haida Story-Tellers_, and was also presented
posthumously to Ghandl and Skye, the two story-tellers on whom the
volumes were based.  Honorable mention also went to Dennis Tedlock
for his book _Rabinal Achi: a Mayan drama of war and sacrifice_.
