2011 Science in Society Awards announced
Date:9/14/2011

The winners of the 2011 Science in Society Journalism Awards, sponsored by the National Association of Science Writers, are:

  • In the Book category, Maryn McKenna for her book Superbug: The Fatal Menace of MRSA (Free Press).

  • In the Science Reporting category, Katy Butler for her New York Times Magazine article, "My Father's Broken Heart"

  • In the Science Reporting for a Local or Regional Audience category, Barbara Moran for her Boston Globe Magazine article, "Power Politics."

  • In the Commentary or Opinion category, Charles Homans, for his Columbia Journalism Review article, "Hot Air."

Winners in each category receive a cash prize of $2,500, to be awarded at a reception on October 15, 2011, during the ScienceWriters2011 meeting taking place this year in Flagstaff, Arizona.

NASW established the Science in Society awards to provide recognition without subsidy from any professional or commercial interest for investigative or interpretive reporting about the sciences and their impact on society. The awards are intended to encourage critical, probing work that would not receive an award from an interest group. Beginning with the first award in 1972, NASW has highlighted innovative reporting that goes well beyond the research findings and considers the associated ethical problems and social effects. The awards are especially prestigious because they are judged by accomplished peers.

NASW currently awards prizes in four categories: Books, Science Reporting, Science Reporting for a Local or Regional Audience, and Commentary or Opinion.

In Superbug, McKenna tells the story of the rise and spread of MRSA, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. One of the judges said of the book, "This is really original reporting; it had wide impact, particularly in the medical community and the infectious disease community in a way that popular science writing often doesn't."
