Did you write, report, produce, shoot, or create a powerful piece of journalism/media in
2011 about the lives of children, youth and families in the U.S.? If so, you should submit this work to the 2012 Casey Medals for Meritorious Journalism, a project of the Journalism Center on Children & Families, funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. The deadline for applications is April 20.
Think back to last year. Did you hear, see, watch or read something about young people or parents that got under your skin and stayed there? Please tell the maker to apply for a Casey Medal. Winners in a dozen categories are awarded $1000 at a ceremony in D.C. in October and will also be considered for $5000 prizes from America’s Promise Alliance. Check out the application and guidelines at journalismcenter.org. New this year: Youth Media category.
