  • Joe Palca and Michelle Trudeau, (with Robert Stein, Peggy Girshman, and Jane Greenhalgh,) National Public Radio

The AAAS Science Journalism Awards honor excellence in science writing in large newspapers (daily circulation more than 100,000), small newspapers (daily or weekly circulation less than 100,000), and magazines, and on radio and television. The winners will be honored on February 14, 1998, at a special ceremony during the Association's annual meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The competition was open to newspaper and magazine articles as well as radio and television shows that were originally published or aired in the United States between July 1, 1996, and June 30, 1997. Independent screening and judging committees consisting of journalists and scientists selected the winners.

Robert Lee Hotz and Julie Marquis of the Los Angeles Times won the competition for the large newspaper category for their October 3 & 13--17, 1996, series entitled "The Brain: A Work in Progress." The series demonstrated how the latest research on the human brain is shedding light on disease, trauma, emotions, and identity. The team is recognized for its comprehensive package of articles that connect issues of neurophysiology and policy in a compelling way.
