We are now accepting submissions for our 2014 Awards
COLLEGIATE JOURNALISM AWARD
Miles Unterreiner (left) of Stanford University accepts The Collegiate Journalism Award from Steve Hayes (right) of The Weekly Standard and Fox News.
The Collegiate Journalism Award recognizes excellence in collegiate reporting in which the student's work demonstrates an understanding of the basic ideas that support a free society. The award is sponsored by the Institute on Political Journalism, an educational program sponsored by The Fund for American Studies.
Judges recognize students who show initiative and original reporting, and superior writing skills, as well as an understanding of the principles of individual freedom. In addition, a quality piece will also demonstrate a skill for accuracy in reporting as well as good use of sources.
The presentation of the awards, including a cash prize of $2,500 for first place and $500 for second place will take place at a luncheon at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on June 20, 2014.
