Awards Banquet Cancelled - Awards Announced Online on 9/25
The Board of Directors of the High Plains Book Awards are very sorry to announce that the Awards public events for 2021 are cancelled, due to rising levels of COVID-19. It seems unwise to hold gatherings at this time. The Awards will still be announced on this website on September 25, and the $500 prize and plaque will be sent to winners after that date. Refunds will be issued for those have purchased tables/tickets. We are very disappointed to have to take this action, and hope for better circumstances in 2022.
