Call for Nominations: The Little Prize 2020


Concordia University’s Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling and Office of Community Engagement invite nominations for the inaugural The Little Prize competition.


The Little Prize is a new, $500 annual award to be given by committee to a COHDS community affiliate (ie non-student, non-professor). This community affiliate will have made a meaningful contribution to their community, through oral-history research-creation, arts-based storytelling, and/or creative, place-based, oral history work. 

The award is named for Dr Ted Little (Theatre), a longstanding core COHDS affiliate, who through his teaching and work as a theatre professional has been a great champion of community-based theatre, storytelling, and artists making change in and with non-profit organizations. 

The Little Prize is intended to recognize exceptional oral history research-creation work outside the university's walls. It is the first prize to be offered through COHDS that honours our extended community. Self-nominations are welcome. The Little Prize will be awarded at the COHDS Annual General Assembly, which this year will take place on Friday, October 9th. 

To submit a nomination: In one page (pdf preferred), please summarize the contributions of the community affiliate you wish to nominate. Please clearly identify the full name and contact information of the nominee, and provide your own full name and contact information. Please also let us know if you are planning to attend this year's AGA. 

Nominations may be sent directly to Dr Sébastien Caquard, Lead Co-Director of the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling, at sebastien.caquard@concordia.ca


Deadline: September 25th, 5pm
