Scripps Howard Awards
What an incredible night of celebration for the 64th Scripps Howard Awards. In addition to recognizing excellence in journalism in 15 categories and giving away 160,000 in prize money, the event in Cincinnati also was an investment in literacy for impoverished children in Greater Cincinnati. In partnership with The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Duke Energy and WCPO - 9 On Your Side, Scripps Howard Foundation awarded literacy grants to three local nonprofit organizations. Princeton City School District won the $100,000 grant for its summer reading program. Dayton Independent School District and The Children's Home of Cincinnati each won $25,000 grants for their literacy programs. You can watch the recorded event here.
