Last call for nominations for the World Owl Hall of Fame Awards

Each year the World Owl Hall of Fame presents awards to people (and sometimes owls) who have done exceptional work to make the world a better place for owls. 

The Champion of Owls award is for a lifetime of work (20 years minimum) impacting multiple parts of at least one continent, in multiple fields (such as research AND conservation, for example). 

The Special Achievement Award is for significant work in a single field, a specific project, or in a smaller region. 

The Lady Gray'l Award is for owls who have made a significant impact as an individual in multiple fields (such as education AND research, for example). 

To be selected as a winner, the nominee must stand head and shoulders above others in their field. A panel of owl experts from four continents with varied backgrounds judge the nominations. Awards are presented at the International Festival of Owls in Houston, Minnesota, USA during the International Festival of Owls the first weekend in March.

Nominations are due 31 August 2020. Start working on forms now, as it takes time to collect all necessary data to make a for a solid nomination. 

Read more about the awards, criteria, past winners, and download nomination forms on the International Festival of Owls website.
