Katherine Schneider Journalism Award for Excellence in Reporting on Disability

Entries are now open for the annual Katherine Schneider Journalism Award for Excellence in Reporting on Disability. The entry deadline is July 31, 2015, by 11:59 p.m.

The Schneider Award is the first national journalism contest devoted exclusively to disability coverage. It is administered by the National Center on 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. Learn more.
