Arthur C. Stern Award for Distinguished Paper
Arthur C. Stern (1909–1992) was a long-time member and past president of the Air Pollution Control Association (APCA), a forerunner of A&WMA. He made major contributions to JA&WMA and his books on air pollution control are well-known nationally and internationally.
The nominator should summarize the significant methods and findings of the paper, demonstrating the impact and importance of the paper in the air pollution or waste management fields, and submit the nomination package to the attention of the Committee Chair, Dr. Jeffrey L. Collett, Jr. (JA&WMA Editor-in-Chief), at email@example.com. Nomination deadline for the 2024 Award is December 31, 2023. The winner will be announced in early 2024. Self-nominations will not be considered
