The Kennedy Student Award is presented for the most significant student-authored paper published in Journal of Herpetology in the previous year. The Award was named for J.P. Kennedy who served as Editor of Journal of Herpetology from 1968-1979. The purpose of the Award is to encourage important contributions to herpetology by young scientists and to encourage students to publish in theJournal of Herpetology. The primary or sole author must have been a student (undergraduate or graduate) at the time the research was conducted, however the paper may have been written after the student received his/her degree. The Award carries with it a cash prize of US $200 or the winner’s selection of any SSAR publications valued at twice that amount. A Committee is appointed by the President of the Society to evaluate papers submitted for consideration. The Committee invites all student members of the Society to submit their work to the Journal of Herpetology and encourages regular members who supervise the work of students to draw this award to the attention of those students.
