50th Anniversary Award

The MTSNYS board recently created and advertised a new 50th Anniversary Award to be given for the first time in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the society’s founding. Upon reflection, our current board has decided to postpone this award pending further consideration of its definition, purpose, and requirements.

The society will move forward with the selection of a 2022 Patricia Carpenter Award winner, which recognizes outstanding scholarship by an emerging scholar in the field. This award includes a $500 honorarium and publication of the winning paper in the society’s journal, Theory and Practice.
