The Canadian Association for Work and Labour Studies (CAWLS) is pleased to announce the awards which will be presented at our inaugural conference, May 29-30, 2014 at Brock University.
CAWLS Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Scholarship
This prize recognizes outstanding scholarship completed by an undergraduate student on work and social change (precise emphasis, academic discipline, cultural context, and time period are open). An electronic copy of the assignment should be sent by the professor or the student to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15, 2014, along with a concise explanation of any information deemed pertinent (e.g. the assignment instructions). Formal essays and more unconventional assignments are welcome. The student does not need to be a member of CAWLS in order to be eligible.

This award is given to the author of the best paper presented at the New Voices in Labour Studies conference which is being held as part of the Canadian Association for Work and Labour Studies conference in 2014. To be considered for the award, electronic copies of the paper should be sent to email@example.com by May 1, 2014.
CAWLS Book Prize
This award honours the best book in Canadian work and labour studies published in 2011, 2012 or 2013. Nominations should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 1, 2014.
