Call for Entries
The American Legion seeks entries for Fourth Estate Awards in print, broadcast and new media

The nation’s largest veterans organization announced today the call for entries in its annual Fourth Estate Award program for excellence in journalism.

The winner in each category will receive a $2,000 stipend to cover expenses and travel to accept the awards at the 2014 American Legion National Convention to be held in Charlotte, North Carolina in August.

The deadline for 2014 submissions in all categories is March 14th.

An entry form and updated rules and information have been posted on The American Legion website at Send questions to anytime.

The awards recognize Internet journalism, print and broadcast achievements.

Submissions are judged on the quality of reporting that the journalist believes produced a positive effect on society.

There is no entry fee and no single medium is limited as to the number of entries.

Some past winners have included Newsweek Magazine, ABC News, Dateline NBC, USA Today and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. The complete list can be found on The American Legion website.
