Welcome to the EWA Awards

The Education Writers Association’s National Awards for Education Reporting advance education journalism by recognizing the field’s very best efforts. The Awards' goals are to:

  • Encourage and inspire more and better education journalism;

  • Underscore the importance of excellent coverage and storytelling as a cornerstone of democracy and education;

  • Highlight and celebrate the work journalists do to make a positive difference in their communities.

Journalists in all kinds of media may participate in the awards. So whether your work appeared in print or online, on TV or the radio, or all of the above, we’re eager to recognize excellence covering education.
