celebrate journalism with us.
Studs Terkel Award is given to writers, editors, reporters,
producers, photographers and videographers who take risks in
covering social issues, by offering new or unusual
perspectives--from housing, race, and violence, to health, education
and more. This is a night where we celebrate the journalists who do
it best--reporting news, as Studs used to say, “from the people who
made Chicago, news that’s bottom up rather than up, down." It’s
where community leaders, advocates and Public Narrative partners
come together with journalists who cover our region to celebrate the
stories that made a difference in our lives.
