Awards are initially reviewed by a committee of judges appointed by the two societies, and then approved by the Awards Committee of the Board of Curators. The presentation of the award is normally done at the WSGS Fall Seminar, but will be made at a time and location convenient to the recipient, if necessary. Books published by the Wisconsin Historical Society and the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society are not eligible to receive awards.
