As part of NINA’s 50th anniversary celebration this year, we’re sponsoring an additional, special competition: The NINA Excellence in Journalism Award. It’s open to all journalists working in northern Illinois, and offers a $1,000 cash prize to the winner. Details soon in a separate post.
Finally, don’t forget to mark your calendars now for the annual NINA fall conference and awards ceremony scheduled for Thursday evening, Oct 18, 2012, at Northern Illinois University. This year marks NINA’s 50th anniversary celebration, and we’re planning a special evening. We look forward to seeing you there.
Good luck in the contest!
