DAYTON, Ohio — The National Aviation Hall of Fame (NAHF) has put out a call for entries for the 14th Annual Combs Gates Award.
The $20,000 cash award is presented each year to an individual or group for a submitted project judged to be exemplary in the promotion and preservation of America’s air and space heritage.
The subject of the projects “ideally spotlights one or more of the 229 men and women aviation pioneers that have been inducted, to date, into the Congressionally-chartered, non-profit NAHF,” officials noted.
The 2016 award ceremony will take place during a special session of the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) annual meeting and convention Nov. 1-3 in Orlando, Florida. Officials from the NAHF and NBAA will present the award, joined by several previous enshrinees of the NAHF.
Among projects eligible for the Combs Gates Award are books, film/video, public exhibits, photography and artwork. The deadline for 2016 submissions is June 13.
