Scripps Howard Foundation names judges for annual National Journalism Awards
CINCINNATI -- The Scripps Howard Foundation has
announced the names of 32 journalists and media professionals
who will judge the National Journalism Awards.
The Foundation will recognize the best work of 1999 in newspaper, broadcast and Web journalism, distinguished service to literacy and First Amendment causes; and college cartoonist categories. The competition was expanded this year to include two new categories, editorial cartooning and Web reporting.
"One of the reasons that the National Journalism Awards are so coveted is the quality of our judges," said Judith G. Clabes, president and CEO of the Scripps Howard Foundation. "This year is no exception. We've succeeded in assembling some of the most respected names in contemporary American journalism to judge the hundreds of excellent entries we've received."
The deadline for entries was Jan. 31. Cash awards totaling $50,000 will be presented Friday, April 14 during a banquet at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
