EWA's National Awards for Education Reporting

The National Awards for Education Reporting advance education journalism by recognizing the field’s very best efforts. Organized by the Education Writers Association, the awards’ goals are to:

  • Encourage and inspire more and better education journalism;
  • Underscore the importance of excellent coverage and storytelling as a cornerstone of education and democracy.

All full-time and freelance reporters may participate in the awards. So whether your work appeared in print or online, on TV or the radio, or all of the above, we’re eager to recognize excellence on the education beat.
