The Jan Garton Prairie Heritage Book Award will be given to the best book of the year that illuminates the heritage of North America’s mid-continental prairies, whether of the tall-grass, mid-grass, or short-grass regions. Authors’ first books receive extra consideration.
From its founding, Prairie Heritage Institute, Inc. has had a special focus on the African-American settlements of the Flint Hills of Kansas; therefore, books exploring non-European prairie heritage are especially welcome. Also encouraged are books that confront the question of prairie ways of life-how denizens of the prairie, human and non-human, have lived or can live together without the destruction and exterminations that have characterized the past.

Topic
Books may be in any genre, and topics may include but are not limited to social or natural history; prairie culture of the past or in-the-making; and interactions between society and ecology.

Organizer
Prairie Heritage and Bird Runner Wildlife Refuge

Prizes
The Prairie Heritage Book Award comes with a cash prize of $1,000.00 and a sponsored book-signing.
