Disability Journalism Awards to be Announced in Early October

The 2020-2021 contest for the Katherine Schneider Journalism Award for Excellence in Reporting on Disability is closed for entries. Winners will be notified in early October and will be honored in a live-streamed event Nov. 1 from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

The Schneider Award is administered each year by the Cronkite School’s National Center on Disability and Journalism at Arizona State University. It is supported by a gift from Katherine Schneider, a retired clinical psychologist who also supports the Schneider Family Book Award, honoring the best children’s book each year that captures the disability experience for children and adolescents. That award is administered by the American Library Association.
