The Foodways Section of the American Folklore Society invites submissions for the Sue Samuelson Award for best student paper on food and foodways. Papers should be based on original fieldwork or research and utilize current folkloric approaches to analysis and interpretation. All entries must be received by March 1.

The prize includes $200 (USD), and publication in the foodways journal Digest. Winners may apply for a travel stipend (of up to $300) to attend the upcoming American Folklore Society conference, provided they are presenting the winning paper or another foodways paper. There is no entrance fee and the contest is open to undergraduate and graduate students.
