Call for Nominations for the 2012 Lehi Hintze Award
for Outstanding Contributions to the Geology of Utah

This award was established in 2003 and first presented to Lehi F. Hintze in honor of his lifetime
commitment to studying, mapping, writing and teaching about the geology of Utah. The eight Lehi Hintze awardees since 2003 are listed in the 2012 UGA Membership Directory.

The Lehi Hintze award is made annually to one person considered by the selection panel to be the most deserving candidate reflecting an outstanding contribution to the geology of Utah. This person can be from academia, government, the private sector, or the general public. The criteria for “Outstanding Contributions to the Geology of Utah” are intended to be interpreted broadly and to include all areas of the geosciences.
