Each year, EWA judges designate one grand prize recipient from the winners of EWA’s   three beat reporting competitions: for small, medium-sized and large newsrooms. The honor comes with a $2,500 cash award.

The Moskowitz prize, which was first presented in 2015, was created by a bequest from the late California education journalist and EWA board member. 

Moskowitz covered education for the San Francisco Chronicle and the San Francisco Examiner during his career. He also served as an education specialist in the administration of California governor Edmund G. “Pat” Brown and staffed the formation of the Education Commission of the States.
