Scott was awarded for his book “Shenandoah Iron,” a history of the iron industry in Shenandoah, Clarke, Frederick, Page and Rockingham counties. The library and the Truban Archives, the Tourism Office and the Historical Society were recognized for a joint project – a 12-panel brochure titled “Farms, Factories and the Front Line: Shenandoah County’s Role in the World Wars.”
