             Subject: The Lincoln Prize

    The Lincoln Prize at Gettysburg College is awarded annually for the finest
    scholarly work in English on the era of the American Civil War. This year
    for the first time Prize is offering $50,000 and a bronze St Gaudens bust
    of Abraham Lincoln for "the finest scholarly work on the era of the
    American Civil War produced in digital format, the world wide web, CD-ROM,
    DVD, and on other forms of electronic distribution. The prize favors
    originality over the dissemination of information. When competing work
    shows similar merit, preference is given to work on Lincoln, the common
    soldier, and projects that reach the broadest public. Individuals, groups
    or institutions may compete for the Prize. No site shall win the Prize more
    than once, but achievement over time might be honored independently of
    previous awards.

    "Nominations for the Prize will be made by members of the Advisory Council.
    In addition, nominations may be made independently if accompanied by three
    recommendations from accredited academic institutions. Finally, on its own,
    the Jury may find other candidates for the Prize."

    Deadline for the 2001 eLP is October 1, 2000. For further information
