The JOHN BEN SNOW FOUNDATION PRIZE is a $500 prize awarded annually by the North American Conference on British Studies for the best book by a North American scholar in any field of British Studies dealing with the period from the Middle Ages through the eighteenth century.  The author must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or Canada and be living in either country at the time of the award.  Nominations may be made by the author or by the publisher of the book nominated.  A publisher may nominate more than one title each year but should use discretion and not overburden the Prize Committee.

The 2010 competition covers books published in 2009.  Separate copies of the letter of nomination and of the book nominated should be sent by April 1, 2010 to each member of the Prize Committee (only books sent to every committee member can be considered).  For prompt attention, mark packages "NACBS Prize Committee."  Send all relevant materials to:
