APA invites applications for the Blanche F. Ittleson Research Award, Agnes Purcell McGavin Award for Prevention, and Agnes Purcell McGavin Award for Distinguished Career Achievement in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. These awards are given to psychiatrists who have made significant contributions to child and adolescent psychiatry. They will be presented at APA's 2005 annual meeting next May in Atlanta.

The Blanche F. Ittleson Research Award recognizes published results of research in child and adolescent psychiatry. This research promises to foster important advances in promoting the mental health of children and adolescents. A psychiatrist or a group of psychiatric investigators either must have published this research within five years or have it officially accepted for publication in the near future.

The Agnes Purcell McGavin Award for Prevention recognizes a psychiatrist who has been successful in research or policy that is recognized as contributing to primary prevention of mental illness among children and adolescents. The winner will be selected from nominations by an APA member telling how the nominee's work has achieved its goal.

The Agnes Purcell McGavin Award for Distinguished Career Achievement in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry recognizes a psychiatrist whose career demonstrates success in research, teaching, publications, clinical care, or policy. Applications for this award should include six copies of a letter from an APA member telling how the nominee's career has contributed to American child and adolescent psychiatry and six copies of the nominee's CV.

The deadline for nominations for the Ittleson Award is August 15. The deadline for nominations for the McGavin awards is August 10.
