Peace and Justice Studies Association Awards

Each year the Peace and Justice Studies Association presents various awards to teachers, scholars, activists, and distinguished peace and justice proponents by recognizing their service, accomplishments, and excellence at a ceremony held during the PJSA conference, Saturday night at the Banquet. The distinguished peacemakers are recognized and given the opportunity to present a message of challenge and hope.

PJSA relies on the input from members of the peace and justice community to nominate individuals for these awards. There are people out there doing outstanding work - this is your chance to see that they are recognized for their efforts. Submit a nomination here.

Awards will be presented in six major categories:
Social Courage Award: For exemplifying courage and honor in building and promoting a culture of peace and non-violence in the face of political pressure and social struggle.

Peace Educator of the Year Award: For exemplary teaching and/or great scholarship in forwarding peace education and peace studies.

The Howard Zinn Lifetime Achievement in Peace Studies Award: For outstanding contributions made to the field of peace and justice studies.

Next Generation Peacemaker Award: For the best young peacemaker of the year.
