Rubincam Youth Award ($500)

The Rubincam Youth Award was established in 1986 to honor Milton Rubincam for his many years of service to the National Genealogical Society and to the field of genealogy. These awards encourage and recognize our youth as the next generation of family historians.

The awards may be given annually to a student in either one or two age categories for an appropriately prepared genealogy. Up to two honorable mentions (runners-up) may also be named in each category. The awards are announced and presented at the annual NGS Banquet at the annual NGS Family History Conference. If the winners are not present, award presentations may be made at another agreed-upon time.

High school students in grades 10–12 or between the ages of 16–18. The award winner receives a $500 cash prize, a plaque, and a one-year NGS membership (nonprint). Presentation details of the winning submission may appear in NGS Magazine. (This was the only category in the Rubincam Youth Award until 2007.)
