— Outstanding Young Journalist
Nominations for all three of the 2017 awards must be in the MPA office by March 31.
Nomination forms are at mopress.com/ current_forms.php , or you can contact Matthew Barba by phone at 573-4449-4167, ext. 302, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the 2017 MPA Convention (Sept. 28-30) in Springfield, Newspaper Hall of Fame honorees will be inducted and Outstanding Young Journalist award winners — one from a weekly and one from a daily — will be recognized and receive their cash awards. Photojournalism Hall of Fame honorees will be inducted in a ceremony this fall.
Each of the nomination forms includes the criteria for selection.
