State government and politics
journalism awards deadline

Sacramento State is reminding all California journalists to submit their entries for two annual awards which recognize excellence in reporting in state government and politics. Established in 1994 this year’s awards will be given in two divisions – daily coverage and enterprise reporting. Print, radio and television journalists are encouraged to submit stories which were published or broadcast in California between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2005.

The twelfth Annual California Journalism Awards and the Katharine M. Macdonald Award are sponsored by the Center for California Studies at Sacramento State. The deadline to submit entries is July 21, 2006.

Panels of distinguished active and retired journalists and academics will do the judging. The Awards will be presented at a luncheon on Friday, September 22, 2006, at the Sacramento Convention Center. A cash prize of $500 will accompany each award. A fourth category, the Macdonald Award, will be given to a student journalist and will be accompanied by a $300 prize.

For more information about the Awards and/or the Awards luncheon, please contact The Center for California Studies, 6000 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95819-6081. Additional information is available by calling (916) 278-6906 or visiting www.csus.edu/calst or e-mailing calstudies@csus.edu.
