“Excellence in Poverty Journalism Award”

ArchCity Defenders invites the community to nominate journalists for its first annual “Excellence in Poverty Journalism Award.”  Through this award, ArchCity Defenders seeks to honor journalists for their commitment to reporting on poverty in St. Louis through highlighting individual experiences within a systemic framework.


Nominations will be accepted between April 13 to May 5, 2017.


The community is invited to nominate journalists who have published a written article between January 1, 2016 to April 1, 2017 about an issue that creates or exacerbates poverty. The article must be no longer than 4,000 words.  Nominations will be evaluated for their emphasis on centering individual experiences with poverty and racism within a systemic, historical analysis. To nominate, send the journalist’s name, article headline, news outlet, and a link to the article if it is available online to or tweet at @ArchCityDefense with #communityjournalism.


A three person panel will judge nominations.
