Science in Society Journalism Awards logo

Entries for the 2017 Science in Society Journalism Awards are open. With five categories, cash prizes, no entry fees and submissions open to members and non-members alike, we hope that you enter your best work from this year and encourage your colleagues to enter, too.

The Science in Society Journalism Awards provide recognition for investigative or interpretive reporting about the sciences and their impact on society and are funded by the National Association of Science Writers without subsidy from any professional or commercial interest. Award committee co-chairs Amber Dance and Alla Katsnelson recruit committees of accomplished peers to judge the entries. If you are interested in volunteering, we’ll be sending details about how to get involved early in the new year.

For complete rules, a link to the online entry system, and an archive of recent winners, visit nasw.org/scienceinsociety. NASW members and those who already have NASW guest accounts can use their existing NASW website login information. New users will be prompted to create a new guest account. Entries close Feb. 1, 2017.
