Linguistics Journalism Award Nomination

Established by the LSA in 2014, this award honors the journalist whose work best represents linguistics during the 12-month consideration period indicated in the call for nominations.

The award is based on a single news story or body of work that reflects accuracy and timeliness as regards the material but is also appealing to nonspecialist audiences. The current call for nominations will be for the period covering June 1, 2020 through May 31, 2021.

Selection of the award recipient will be made by a committee consisting of 2-3 members of the LSA Public Relations Committee (PRC) and the Executive Committee liaison to the PRC.
