(3) A Florida Writing Award

The Norton Award, named for the SF/fantasy author Andre Norton, was part of a short story writing contest begun in 1989 in Florida.

The award was presented annually at the Florida Freelance Writers Conference in Orlando, Florida, and the winning stories were selected by a professional writer from a group of manuscripts submitted by a committee. The top award each year was sponsored by Andre Norton.

The first top award winner was "The Last Gift" by Eleanora Sabin.
