Scripps Howard Awards
The Scripps Howard Awards, one of the nation’s most prestigious journalism competitions, accepted entries through Feb. 5. Finalists will be announced Feb. 27 and winners will be announced March 6 via YouTube and Facebook live streams. The Awards’ 65th competition will present $170,000 in prize money for work across 16 categories, including the Impact Award, which will honor the year’s best work from all winners. The awards will be presented on April 19, 2018, with a live show hosted by “60 Minutes” correspondent Lara Logan.
With a focus on high-impact reporting, the awards recognize journalism that spurs action; news organizations that go the extra mile to expose previously undisclosed or misunderstood information; and journalists who embrace new tools, channels, technologies and approaches or creatively use established methods to provide more meaningful experiences for their audiences.
