The Sociology of Agriculture and Food Research Interest Group (SAFRIG) will present a Student Paper Award at the annual meeting of the Rural Sociological Society. Requirements for this award include that:

1) the paper focuses on an agrifood topic,
2) the paper is authored by a student or group of students (no faculty co-authors),
3) all authors are members of the Rural Sociological Society,
4) the authors commit to presenting at the 2021 RSS Annual Meeting if the paper is selected as the winner (format of the conference is TBD);
5) the paper uses the Rural Sociology journal guidelines for style, formatting, and references.

Papers will be particularly competitive if they demonstrate effective use of innovative theories, methods, and/or attention to unique geographic, cultural, and political contexts. Submissions for the Student Paper Award competition can be under initial review at a peer-reviewed journal but cannot be already accepted (in press) or published in a peer-reviewed journal. The winner(s) will receive a certificate and monetary award. The award will be presented during the SAFRIG Business Meeting at the 2021 conference. Questions and submissions as a word document should be sent to Florence Becot at [email protected]. Submission deadline is May 15, 2021.
