Lillian Johnsson, of Chamberlain, was the recipient of the Arthur and Willmeta Johnson award for her paper given last year at the conference. Judged to be of superior merit, her paper was based on the life of Nellie Z. Willhite, South Dakota's first woman pilot.

The event involves a national gathering of 70-80 presenters from 15 to 20 states. Its mission is to encourage research and debate on issues affecting residents and institutions of the northern Great Plains.
