WAUKESHA, WI – Starting in 2006, Astronomy magazine will present an annual $2,500 award to an astronomy club or organization for excellence in astronomy outreach activities. The “Out-of-this-world” Award focuses on ongoing outreach programming – not one specific event – as conducted by any educational or civic organization. The prize will reward a group’s sustained efforts to involve its local community in the science and hobby of astronomy and will be awarded for use in future astronomy outreach activities. Astronomy editors will review each entry and select a winner.
Applications and material must be postmarked by July 15, 2006. The winner will be announced in September.

In addition, it strives to empower local astronomy organizations that help bring out-of-this-world wonders to their communities.
