The American Astronomical Society is accepting nominations for the Chambliss Amateur Achievement Award.
The award is for an achievement in astronomical research by an amateur astronomer in North America. As an amateur astronomer, nominees cannot be professionally employed in the astronomy field.
People are allowed to nominate themselves, so long as the work contributes to the advancement of the science of astronomy.
To nominate yourself or anyone you think should win the award, follow the instructions on the website and make sure nominations are submitted before the June 30th deadline.
