Posted: 9/11/2012 | By: Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University
A new national journalism awards program will recognize excellence in
reporting on disability issues and people with disabilities.
The Katherine Schneider Journalism Award for Excellence in Reporting
on Disability is the first national journalism contest devoted
exclusively to disability coverage. It is administered by the National
Center for Disability and Journalism, headquartered at the Walter
Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State
University, under a grant from Katherine Schneider, a retired clinical
psychologist who also supports the Schneider Family Book Award. That
award is administered by the American Library Association and honors the
best children’s book each year that captures the disability experience
for children and adolescents.
