EWA Opens Entries for 2020 Education Reporting Awards
Journalists Working in All Media Invited to Compete
The Education Writers Association is pleased to announce the launch of the 2020 National Awards for Education Reporting. Journalists may submit entries from 9:00 a.m. Eastern time on Nov. 16, 2020 through 11:59 p.m. Pacific time on Dec. 15, 2020.
Journalists who have published work in 2020 on any education topic in any medium are encouraged to enter the contest, which features a total of 20 prizes with cash awards ranging from $1,000 to $10,000.
The Education Writers Association is pleased to announce that it will again administer the Eddie Prize, the journalism prize from The Edwin Gould Foundation that recognizes the best work on the challenges low-income students face getting into and/or completing college.
All entries must have been published, posted or broadcast in an independent news outlet for the first time in 2020, with the following exceptions: EWA does accept series in which some of the articles were published during the 2019–2020 school year, but a majority of the series’ pieces must have run in calendar year 2020. There’s one additional caveat to this exception: Stories published or broadcast in 2019 that were recognized in last year’s EWA awards are ineligible for consideration in this year’s awards.
