Each year, the International Wizard of Oz Club presents the L. Frank Baum Memorial Award to a person (or persons) who has made significant contributions to the work and purposes of the Club. That generally involves regional or national Oz Club convention work, creative or editorial work for Club publications, assistance with the technical work of the Club, or significant scholarship related to Oz and its creators.  You can find a complete list of past winners on our website.  A video prepared to share our 2021 winner is below.

All three contests offer a first-place prize of $100 and a second-place prize of $50.
