|National Journalism Award|
During the 1997 EAA Oshkosh Convention, the National Association of State Aviation Officials Board of Directors announced the creation of its NASAO National Journalism Award. The award is designed to recognize superior news coverage of aviation issues by both the mass media and the aviation trade press. The first NASAO National Journalism Award was presented on September 9, 1997 at NASAO’s 66th Annual Meeting in Tulsa, Oklahoma. An impeccably high standard was set by granting the inaugural award to Gordon Baxter, longtime columnist for Flying magazine. The recipient will receive the award at the NASAO Annual Convention & Trade Show.
The NASAO National Journalism Award is open to an individual writer, editor, or producer or entire news organization such as a magazine, newspaper, radio, or television news program/network. Nominations must be made by a state aviation director or the NASAO Washington staff.
Nominations must be typed, submitted electronically and include:
The NASAO Executive Committee shall act as the judges. Judges will be asked to rank each nominee and to consider the degree to which they have contributed to strengthening the understanding of the general public to the importance that aviation plays in our lives.
