The Connecticut SPJ Excellence in Journalism dinner was held on Thursday, May 21, 2015 at Seasons at the Tradition in Wallingford.
Money raised from the annual Excellence in Journalism Contest supports various journalistic causes throughout the state each year, including the Connecticut Council for Freedom of Information, Connecticut Foundation for Open Government, student SPJ chapters, SPJ’s Legal Defense Fund, the SPJ Region 1 fund and CTSPJ scholarships. The money also funds administrative costs of the contest and the Connecticut Pro Chapter of SPJ.
Contest entries are typically accepted from late December through mid February.
The Society of Professional Journalists works to improve and protect journalism. SPJ promotes the free flow of information vital to a well-informed citizenry and works to inspire and educate the next generation of journalists.
