UK Libraries Medallion for Intellectual Achievement.
The UK Libraries Medallion for Intellectual Achievement, one of UK's most prestigious awards, was first awarded in 1990 to recognize high intellectual achievement by Kentuckians and to encourage education and promote creative thought. Final selection of the Medallion recipient is determined by the UK Libraries National Advisory Board.
Candidates, either a person or group, may be nominated with completion of the application and a nominating statement that describes the intellectual achievement realized in a scientific, artistic, literary, social, or humanitarian field; significance of the achievement; and endorsements or verification of the work.
Members of the general public are welcome to submit nominations. More information is online, along with the 2016 nomination form.
