THE ROBERT F. KENNEDY BOOK AWARD
The Robert F. Kennedy Book Award was founded in 1980 with the proceeds from Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.’s best-selling biography, “Robert Kennedy and His Times.” Each year, the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights presents an award to the book which “most faithfully and forcefully reflects Robert Kennedy’s purposes – his concern for the poor and the powerless, his struggle for honest and even-handed justice, his conviction that a decent society must assure all young people a fair chance, and his faith that a free democracy can act to remedy disparities of power and opportunity.” The RFK Book Award has been recognized as one of the most prestigious honors an author can receive.
THE ROBERT F. KENNEDY JOURNALISM AWARDS
The Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards honor outstanding reporting on issues that reflect Robert Kennedy’s concerns, including human rights, social justice, and the power of individual action in the United States and around the world. Winning entries provide insights into the causes, conditions, and remedies of injustice and human rights violations, and critical analyses of relevant policies, programs, individual actions, and private endeavors that foster positive change. The RFK Journalism Awards are among the few in which winners are determined by their peers. Past winners include The Washington Post, National Public Radio, CBS’s 60 Minutes, ABC’s 20/20, and Home Box Office.
Deadline: Entries must be received no later than February 1, 2012.
