The Peter Raven Award is given by the American Society of Plant Taxonomists to a plant systematist who has made exceptional efforts at outreach to non-scientists. Examples of outreach may include, but are not limited to 1) workshops or seminars for K--12 teachers, local horticultural societies, garden clubs, and schools or businesses; 2) special events for the general public (e.g., nature hikes, wildflower workshops); 3) newspaper columns or op-ed articles; 4) freelance articles in newspapers, on the worldwide web, and in horticultural or popular science magazines; 5) taxon-oriented websites or books that are aimed at a lay audience; 6) TV spots; 7) legislative testimony; and 8) legal defense of rare or endangered plant species. The award is intended to be international in scope. All persons, from any country, who have made significant contributions in this area, may be considered.

ASPT members are encouraged to submit nominations for the Peter Raven Award, which will be presented at the annual meeting. The nomination materials should include (1) a letter of nomination, (2) a curriculum vitae for the nominee (emphasizing the outreach areas) and (3) three or more supporting letters from others familiar with the nominee and his or her career. All nomination materials should be submitted electronically as pdf files to the ASPT Honors Committee Chair.
