AAAS Science Journalism Awards Represent the Pinnacle of Achievement for Science Reporters
The AAAS Science Journalism Awards program is seeking entries for its 2002 contest. The contest is open to work first published or broadcast between 1 July 2001 and 30 June 2002. All entries must be postmarked by Thursday, 1 August 2002.
The Science Journalism Awards recognize and encourage outstanding reporting of the sciences, engineering and mathematics. The awards are highly coveted among the science journalism community, and the winners are honored each year at an awards ceremony during the AAAS annual meeting.
Since their inception in 1945, the awards have honored more than 300 individuals for their significant achievements in reporting on the sciences for newspapers, magazines, television, radio, and online publications. The winning journalists have written stories on life, physical, and social sciences; engineering and mathematics; and policy issues that are grounded in science and technology. Most importantly, science journalists have fascinated and enlightened their audience about science’s efforts to better understand our universe and ourselves.
The Whitaker Foundation, a private nonprofit organization supporting biomedical research and education, funds the AAAS Science Journalism Awards. The foundation has funded the competition since 1995.
