The jury will select one or more recipients every year for the best article for the AALL Spectrum Article of the Year Award, or no recipient if it deems none of the nominees sufficiently qualified, and will submit the winning recipient’s name(s) to the Awards Committee. *Jury members should not have an article published or have plans to publish an article within the publication the year prior through the current year to avoid having to recuse yourself from voting.
Jury members will work during the months of February and March to review all AALL Spectrum articles from the previous year. The award recipient(s) must be selected by April 1.
Membership on the jury will be for one year.
The jury will consist of a chair, vice chair, five members, and a non-voting Executive Board and staff liaison.
