Get rewarded for your good works about children, youth, and families: The Casey Medals deadline is April 20. Details below.
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. 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 www. journalismcenter.org. New this year: Youth Media category.
