Society of Professional Journalists Invites Nominations for Pulliam First Amendment Award

The Sigma Delta Chi Foundation, a nonprofit that supports the educational programs of the Society of Professional Journalists and serves the professional needs of journalists and students pursuing careers in journalism, is accepting nominations for the Eugene C. Pulliam First Amendment Award, which honors a person or persons who have fought to protect and preserve one or more of the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment.

Nominations are open to any person, persons, or organization in the United States and its territories working to protect the basic rights provided by the First Amendment. Honorees do not have to be journalists. The foundation encourages recognition of those outside the journalism profession for their First Amendment efforts and initiatives, including but not limited to public officials, members of the legal profession, scholars, educators, librarians, students, and ordinary citizens.

The winning individual(s) or organization will be honored at the SPJ national convention with a $10,000 cash award and an engraved crystal. The honoree(s) also will receive transportation to and a two-night hotel stay during the national convention.

Visit the SPJ Web site for complete nomination guidelines and instructions.
