The Military history newcomer of the year award recognizes a promising newcomer to the Military history WikiProject that editors feel deserves a nod of appreciation for their hard work over the past 12 months. The award is open to any editor who has become active in military history articles in the 12 months prior to the opening of nominations. It was first awarded in December 2012 for the preceding twelve month period. Editors are nominated for the award during a formal nomination period at the end of the year, and then chosen by a vote. The top two place-getters receive the Golden Wiki and the Wikiproject Barnstar.
