As a member of Central States Numismatic Society, you are reminded that The Centinel is constantly in search of worthwhile numismatic material for publication, especially the works and writings of its own members.

Each year a number of members make literary contributions for publication, thereby sharing their personal knowledge of the hobby, adding enjoyment to the lives of our readers - and paving the way for possible special recognition.

Annually since 1969, Central States has honored one or more members whose literary efforts have been judged deserving of recognition. To winners in the senior division go the newly renamed Bradfield / Finner Literary Awards, named in honor of the late Elston G. Bradfield, founding editor of The Centinel, and your current editor. Our junior authors compete for the Daniel C. Parker Literary Award. Authors receive nominal payment following publication of their material, and literary awards consist of cash prizes!

Competition for the '15 Bradfield/Finner and Parker awards will close following publication of the Winter, 2014-15, issue, and respective awards will be presented as one of the highlights of the Saturday morning awards breakfast.

There's plenty of time to work on your entry for the '15 competition! Manuscripts - Microsoft Word Document only, please!

Questions and inquiries should be directed to the Editor.
