Congratulations to new Public Archaeology Graduate Student Carlyn Stewart, who was awarded the Powers Prize for the best extemporaneous talk given by an archaeologist under the age of 35 at the 2018 Pecos Conference which was held in Flagstaff, AZ this year. The title of her talk was "Why Public Archaeology is Important: A Year of Bruised Hands and a Shocking Lack of Dinosaurs" which discussed her work over the past year at Tonto National Monument in Arizona for Archaeology Southwest.   The Powers Prize honors Robert P. Powers, a teacher, mentor, adviser and friend to countless Southwestern archaeologists. For more information, visit the Pecos Conference Website here.
