Scripps Howard Foundation Offers Collegiate Reporting Prize Trip to Japan and South Korea
CINCINNATI – The Scripps Howard Foundation is accepting entries for its annual Roy W. Howard National Collegiate Reporting Competition, which offers winners a 12-day expenses-paid journalism study experience in Japan and South Korea.
The competition, which is open to undergraduate communication students, has a postmark entry deadline of Feb. 28. Winners will be announced March 17, and the trip will take place June 14-27. Entry forms are online at www.scripps.com/foundation.
Judith G. Clabes, foundation president and CEO, said the prize responds to the need for today’s student journalists to better understand international affairs.
“We have in Bradley J. Hamm, dean of the journalism school at Indiana University, a uniquely qualified leader for this trip,” she said. “He is not only a gifted instructor, but also a Roy W. Howard scholar who has extensive travel experience throughout Asia.”
The competition, established in 1984 in cooperation with the Indiana University School of Journalism, honors the memory of the journalist who led Scripps Howard Newspapers from 1922-1953 and United Press International from 1912-1920.
Dedicated to excellence in journalism, the Scripps Howard Foundation is a leader in industry efforts in journalism education, scholarships, internships, literacy, minority recruitment/development and First Amendment causes. It is the philanthropic arm of The E. W. Scripps Company, a diverse and growing media enterprise with interests in national cable networks, newspaper publishing, broadcast television stations, interactive media and licensing and syndication.
