SPJ Keystone Pro Chapter’s Best in Journalism (Affiliated Awards)

SPJ Keystone Pro Chapter’s Best in Journalism (Affiliated Awards)




Harrisburg, Pa.


Pat Trosky





The statewide chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) annually conducts a contest recognizing excellence in journalism in 20 categories. The Keystone State SPJ Chapter’s most prestigious category, the Spotlight Award, is given to the journalist(s) whose published investigative story or series scooped other media and placed the public’s right to know in the public spotlight.

The PNA Foundation works in cooperation with SPJ leaders to allow the presentation of these awards during the Keystone Media Awards Celebration; however, the PNA Foundation has no other involvement in these awards.

*Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the May 30 Keystone Media Awards Celebration has been canceled.  The PNA Foundation is reviewing alternative ways of recognizing and celebrating the outstanding efforts of professional PA journalists.  More information will be available in the coming months.  Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these changes that are affecting all aspects of our lives.
