The Edward Novitski Prize is awarded by the Genetics Society of America (GSA) to recognize an extraordinary level of creativity and intellectual ingenuity in solving significant problems in genetics research.

Named in honor of Drosophila geneticist Edward Novitski (1918-2006), the award recognizes scientific achievement that stands out from the body of innovative work, that is deeply impressive to creative masters in the field, and that solves a difficult problem in genetics. It recognizes the beautiful and intellectually ingenious experimental design and execution involved in genetics scientific discovery.

The prize, established by the Novitski family, includes an engraved medal.

The Novitski Prize was mentioned on the television series Grimm as an indication of a character's credentials in genetics research.
