2006 Science-in-Society award winners announced

Stories about in vitro fertilization, biodiversity, the effects of global warming in the Arctic and in Colorado, and the worldwide effects of a flu pandemic are the subjects of this year's winners of the Science-in-Society award, which is conferred by the National Association of Science Writers (NASW).

NASW holds the independent competition annually to honor outstanding investigative and interpretive reporting about the sciences and their impact on society for good or ill. The 72-year-old organization of science writers recognizes and encourages critical, probing works in five categories: newspaper, magazine, broadcast, Web and book. The award is considered the highest honor in science journalism because winners are chosen by panels of their accomplished peers and lauded for work that would not receive an award from an interest group. The awards are not subsidized by any commercial interest. Expenses and prize money for the award come from the dues of NASW's roughly 2,300 members. Winners receive $1,000 and a certificate, which will be awarded October 29, 2006 at NASW's annual Science-in-Society meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.

This year's winners: Broadcast--Craig Duff with Andrew C. Revkin for Arctic Rush, a collaboration of The New York Times, the Discovery Times Channel and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The documentary examines how the melting of the Arctic is affecting travel, business opportunities, and international diplomacy. The judges commended the peace's solid on-site reporting, and its very thorough analysis of multiple sources of information. The judges also awarded an honorable mention to Daniel Grossman for "Preserving the Magic of Madagascar," Living on Earth and Radio Netherlands.

Web--Daniel Grossman, correspondent, Ken George, project manager, and Gavin MacCarthy, Web designer and multimedia editor for Fantastic Forests: The Balance Between Nature and People of Madagascar, w
