Six reporters named to receive 2002 AAAS Science Journalism Awards

A broadcast program on "18 Ways to Make a Baby," an expose on burning coal fires, and feature coverage of research that draws a line between bird songs and neurodegenerative disease, are among the entries named to win 2002 AAAS Science Journalism Awards.

Sponsored by The Whitaker Foundation, the AAAS Science Journalism Awards program, informally known as the "AAAS pinnacle of excellence prize," represents the ultimate achievement in the field of science reporting.

"I also feel a bit like the kid who brings home his first straight-A report card. His parents say, 'We knew you could do it. Now, keep it up!' The award poses a similar challenge to all its recipients: to hit that level of excellence with greater consistency.

The 2002 AAAS Science Journalism Award recipients, below, will each receive a $2,500 cash award and plaque during a gala reception at the 2003 AAAS Annual Meeting in Denver next February. (See www.aaas.org to register for the Annual Meeting):
