The Dana Meadows Award was established in 2001 to honor the late Dana Meadows and encourage the next generation of students in the field of system dynamics. The award is given annually for the best paper by a student presented at the annual System Dynamics Conference. Students can self-nominate any manuscript that has been submitted for inclusion in the conference. The winner receives a cash award of $500 as well as conference registration plus travel expenses (up to a combined maximum of $700).
