    We particularly seek works that speak to the following themes: preservation of and access to wilderness, environmental cooperation; insight derived from living in the West; cultural diversity; changing federal involvement in the region; women, minority populations and the West; implications of population growth; the contributions of individual scholars, artists, community leaders, and public intellectuals toward an enlarged understanding of the (both new and old) West. We look for good writing that engages human nature as well as natural environment. The Dr. Sherwin W. Howard Award of $500 is presented annually to the author of the best poetry published in Weber during the previous year. The Dr. O. Marvin Lewis Award of $500 is presented annually to the author of the best essay published in Weber during the previous year.
