Each year the Center for Great Plains Studies presents a prize for the previous year's best book on the Great Plains. This year, the prize has been renamed as the Stubbendieck Great Plains Distinguished Book Prize and the cash award increased to $10,000. Publishers or authors may make nominations; each publisher may submit up to five titles. Only first edition, full-length, nonfiction books copyrighted in 2014 are evaluated for the award. The deadline for the 2015 book prize is Jan. 23, 2015. A winner will be selected May 2015.
