The Junior and Senior Division National Contest individual documentary winners receive the Next Generation Angels Awards from The Better Angels Society.

These awards are given in recognition of excellence in historical filmmaking. In addition, the first place senior division winner receives the Anne Harrington Award, named for the late longtime friend and colleague of filmmaker Ken Burns. The Next Generation Angels Awards are the youth component of the Library of Congress Lavine/Ken Burns Prize for Film, an initiative to support professional filmmakers exploring themes in American history.
