PNA Foundation Public Service Award

Continuing the tradition of the news media as the "fourth estate," the PNA Foundation Public Service Award is presented to the news company that has helped improve the community through public service leadership.

This non-journalistic award is presented to a news company that has made a significant contribution to the betterment of its community through public service leadership. Entries are judged on the following:

  • A significant effort by the newspaper beyond the scope of its normal routine
  • The development of public service initiatives and activities
  • The results of the public service leadership efforts

View the 2017 Specialty Contest Rules and 2017 Specialty Entry Form.  Entries were due at the PNA Foundation by 5 p.m. on Monday, August 21, 2017.

The winner will be announced in early October. The award will be presented during the Newspaper of the Year Awards  Brunch, Nov. 3, 2017, at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel, in conjunction with the PNA Annual Convention
