2005 HAROLD MAZURSKY AWARD NOMINATIONS SOUGHT
 
Nominations for the 2005 Harold Masursky Award for Meritorious 
Service to Planetary Science are due March 7 2005 at noon CST. 
This prize was established by the DPS to recognize and honor 
individuals who have rendered outstanding service to planetary 
science and exploration through engineering, managerial, 
programmatic, or public service activities.
 
For purposes of this prize, "planetary science" is understood 
to refer to the multidisciplinary study of the solar system 
and its members, excluding work dealing primarily with the Sun 
or the Earth.
 
Candidates for the Masursky Award may be of any age or 
nationality, and need not be members of the DPS. While 
primarily intended to honor living people, a posthumous 
nomination may be submitted within one year of a nominee's death.
 
Go to http://www.aas.org/~dps/prizes_contact.html, fill out 
the nomination form and send it to me along with the 
supporting materials listed there.  A complete nomination 
will be considered by the Prize subcommittee for three years. 
You may wish to contact me to see if there already is an 
active pending nomination for your candidate. Because of the 
time it takes to accumulate materials needed for a nomination, 
I encourage all of you to begin as soon as possible. The award 
will be presented at the 2005 DPS meeting in Cambridge, England.

2005 SAGAN MEDAL NOMINATIONS SOUGHT
 
Dear Members -
 
Nominations for the 2005 Carl Sagan Medal are due March 7 2005 
at noon CST.  This award was established by the DPS to recognize 
and honor outstanding communication by an active planetary 
scientist to the general public.  It is to be awarded to 
scientists whose efforts have significantly contributed to a 
public understanding of, and enthusiasm for, planetary science.
 
Communicating our science to the public is a critical part of 
sustaining our science, which is supported largely through 
public financing by state and federal institutions. The public, 
in turn, finds solar system exploration immediate and exciting. 
We owe a debt to those planetary scientists who take it upon 
themselves to clearly articulate what we do  and present it with 
energy and enthusiasm to general audiences to the benefit of all.
 
For purposes of this prize, "planetary science" is understood 
to refer to the multidisciplinary study of the solar system 
and its members, excluding work dealing primarily with the 
Sun or the Earth.
 
Candidates for the Sagan Medal may be of any age or nationality. 
Only living nominees will be considered for an award.
 
Go to http://www.aas.org/~dps/prizes_contact.html, fill out 
the nomination form and send it to me along with the 
supporting materials listed there.  A complete nomination 
will be considered by the Prize subcommittee for three years. 
You may wish to contact me to see if there already is an 
active pending nomination for your candidate. Because of 
the time it takes to accumulate materials needed for a 
nomination, I encourage all of you to begin as soon as 
possible. The award will be presented at the 2005 DPS meeting 
in Cambridge, England.
 
Sagan Medal winners include:
 
        1998   W. K. Hartmann                1999   C. R. Chapman
        2000   L. A. Lebofsky                2001   A.    Brahic
        2002   H. B. Hammel                  2003   (no award)
