Journalists slog through workdays, late nights and weekends to not only get stories, but to get them right. Watch all that effort pay off at the 2021 #SEJAwards Ceremony and Panel Discussion. Join us on Wednesday, October 20, at 1:00 p.m. ET as we gather virtually to honor the best-of-the-best in environmental journalism, including the live announcement of the winner of the Nina Mason Pulliam Award and $10,000 cash prize, selected from the first-place winners in all categories.

Join us to hear the best environmental journalists in the country share what it takes to cover the biggest story on the planet and what lies ahead for the future of this critical beat.

The Award was created by the SEJ board in 1998 and named for SEJ’s founder David Stolberg. Volunteers define the heart and soul of SEJ, and they expand the group’s reach and significance in ways that are not easily measured. Many thanks to our 2020 and 2021 winners for their exemplary service to SEJ!
