Evert Clark/Seth Payne Award for Young Science Journalists

Entries for the 2014 Evert Clark/Seth Payne Award for Young Science Journalists are open until June 30. For details and entry instructions, visit http://casw.org/evert-clark-award.

The Council for the Advancement of Science Writing is now managing judging and presentation of this award, which recognizes outstanding reporting and writing by a young journalist covering any field of science. The award is given in memory of Ev Clark, a veteran journalist at Business Week, The New York Times and Newsweek, and Seth Payne, his long-time friend and colleague at Business Week and a founder of the award. It is designed to carry on the work of both men, who offered friendship and advice to generations of young journalists. A special thanks to John Carey, who from 1989 to 2014, organized the judging and much of the administration of this landmark award, all on a volunteer basis; Steve Wildstrom, who managed the website and helped screen entries; and the National Press Foundation, which has stewarded the award's endowment.

Writers age 30 and under can submit entries at http://casw.org/evert-clark-award. The winner of the 25th Clark/Payne Award will receive $1,000 and an expense-paid trip to ScienceWriters2014, where the award will be presented. Deadline: June 30.
