Program 2

General

EWA is reinvigorating long-standing services while opening new avenues for members to connect, learn, and access individual assistance. Webinars, blogs, videos, podcasts, e-newsletters, and email listservs are among the ways EWA knits together the community that cares about high-quality education coverage.

Our professional gatherings include the National Seminar, an annual conference on covering education from cradle to career for hundreds of journalists, education experts, newsmakers, and others. The annual Higher Education Seminar focuses on postsecondary education, while other gatherings throughout the year offer training and information on a range of timely topics in both education and journalism.

Our public editor provides free, confidential help with reporting, writing, and editing to hundreds of journalists each year. And the National Awards for Education Reporting, an annual contest, recognizes excellence in all types of media, including through the Fred M. Hechinger Grand Prize for Distinguished Education Reporting.
