Science in Society Journalism Award winners announced
Date:9/17/2010

The winners of the 2010 Science in Society Journalism Awards, sponsored by the National Association of Science Writers, are:

  • In the Book category, Susan Cohen and Christine Cosgrove for "Normal at Any Cost: Tall Girls, Short Boys, and the Medical Industry's Quest to Manipulate Height" (Tarcher/Penguin).

  • In the Science Reporting category, a tie between entries from the Associated Press and the New York Times. Martha Mendoza and Margie Mason won for their Associated Press series "When Drugs Stop Working," and Charles Duhigg won for his New York Times series "Toxic Waters."

  • In the Local or Regional Science Reporting category, J. Madeleine Nash for her article "Bring in the Cows," which appeared in High Country News.

Winners in each category will share a cash prize of $2,500, to be awarded at a reception on November 7, 2010 during the ScienceWriters2010 meeting, taking place this year in New Haven, Connecticut.

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 with a Local or Regional Focus, and Commentary or Opinion .

The judges chose not to make an award in the Commentary or Opinion category this year.

  • In "Normal at Any Cost," Cohen and Cosgrove tell the history of medical attempts to alter height in children. I
