NATIONAL AWARDS OF THE RASC

Chant Medal
The Chant Medal of the Society was established in 1940 in appreciation of the great work of the late professor Clarence Augustus Chant in furthering the interests of astronomy in Canada. This medal is awarded, not oftener than once a year, to an amateur astronomer resident in Canada on the basis of the value of the work which he has carried out in astronomy and closely allied fields of investigation.

1987 Recipient: M. Damien Lemay

Service Award
The Service Award was established in 1959. On the recommendation of a special committee of the National Council, this bronze plaque is presented to members who have performed outstanding service to a centre or to the National Society.

1987 Receipients: Mr. Peter Broughton, Mr. Cyril Clark

Simon Newcomb Award
The Simon Newcomb Award is named in honour of the famous Canadian astronomer Simon Newcomb (1835-1909). It was created in 1978 to recognize literary ability among members who are not professional astronomers.

1987 Receipient: Mr. Peter Jedicke
