Charles M. Schulz Award
April 13, 2010
I was recently named the recipient of the 2010 Charles M. Schulz Award for cartooning. This is truly a huge honor for me and very exciting! Here is a little bit more about the National Journalism Awards:
The Scripps Howard Foundation today announced the winners of its annual National Journalism Awards, honoring the best work in the communications industry and journalism education in 2009.
The competition was established in 1953 and is open to all U.S. news organizations and college journalism and mass communications educators. Opportunities for 2009 work were increased across multiple platforms and two new categories were created for community journalism and breaking news to reflect changes in the media business.
Cash awards totaling $175,000 will be presented in 17 categories April 23 during a dinner at the Grand Hyatt in Tampa, Fla. It will be hosted by the Foundation and its corporate founder, The E.W. Scripps Company.
“These awards not only recognize outstanding talent, skill and intellect, but reward dedication to serving our country and communities with journalism that changes lives and protects democracy,” said Mike Philipps, Foundation president and chief executive officer. “It’s a powerful message we look forward to sharing in Tampa, home of Scripps television station WFTS-ABC Action News.”
