The Peter V. Hobbs Prize is awarded for the best student paper presented at each American Meteorological Society Conference on Cloud Physics.

The entrant must be the lead author and the presenting author of the poster or oral presentation; co-authorship by non-students (e.g., faculty adviser) is permitted. The prize, an AMS reference book, $200 plus a certificate, was established to recognize Peter V.
