2012 AWARD WINNERS - SCARBOROUGH SAC
Peter Small was a well known science journalist and co-founder of the BSAC. He promoted and was involved in “inner space” research; a passion that would ultimately claim his life.
In December 1962 Peter tragically died aged only 35, during a pioneering deep diving experiment to 1020ft in the Pacific Ocean.
It has been some time since an award in memory of Peter Small has been made (see two files in the list on the right, containing scans of historical documents), since the original Peter Small award has been retired. However, the resurgence of a number of meaningful diving projects in the last couple of years has prompted the BSAC in conjunction with the British Sub Aqua Jubilee Trust to resurrect that award.
The Peter Small Jubilee Trust Award will to be awarded annually for the most worthwhile and ambitious BSAC Project, conducted in British waters. The recipient will receive a prestigious medal to keep and also a prize of £1000.
Eligible diving projects should promote the advancement of underwater exploration and the education of the public by encouraging safe diving whilst conducting underwater study, research and exploration.
Applications for the award should be made to the BSAC Expeditions Officer, c/o BSAC HQ accompanied by both a soft and hard copy report on the project.
The BSAC National Diving Officer with assistance from the BSAC Expeditions Officer will nominate up to three projects, with associated justification, for the BSA Jubilee Trust to consider and select the award recipient.
The award will only be made if the project is considered by the BSA Jubilee Trust to be of a satisfactory standard.
