Scripps Howard Awards Videos and Awards Book

Winners of the Scripps Howard Awards were honored at a dinner on May 9, 2013 at the Waldorf Astoria in Naples, Fla., home of the Naples Daily News, a Scripps newspaper. It was an extraordinary evening of celebrating great journalism. Cash awards totaling $175,000 and distinctive Scripps Howard Award trophies were presented to the winners.

The awards recognize excellence in 17 categories, including editorial writing; human interest storytelling, environmental and public service reporting; investigative reporting; business/economics reporting; commentary; photojournalism; radio and television journalism; community journalism; breaking news; digital innovation. The awards also honor distinguished service to journalism education and the First Amendment.

An awards program book (7 MB) features the winners' work, lists the finalists and judges of the competition.

We hope you enjoy the videos featuring the winners' work - the best of 2012 - and their acceptance speeches.
