For the thirteenth consecutive year, the John A. Adams ’71 Center for Military History & Strategic Analysis at Virginia Military Institute is pleased to announce that it will award prizes for the best-unpublished papers on Cold War military history.
Any aspect of the Cold War (1945-1991) era is eligible, including papers on military strategy, plans, and operations; the relationship between the armed forces and society; international security affairs; and the connections between Cold War military history and contemporary geopolitical challenges.
Prizes: First place will earn a plaque and a cash award of $2,000; second place, $1,000 and a plaque; and third place, $500 and a plaque.

Please make your submission as Microsoft Word document and limit your entry to a maximum of 7,500 words (minimum 4,000 words) of double-spaced text, exclusive of documentation and bibliography. A panel of judges will examine all papers; the Adams Center director will announce the winners in late 2017. The Journal of Military History will consider prize-winning essays for publication. In addition, the Adams Center would like to post the best papers, with the permission of the author, on its website.
