hemical and electrical changes that allow us to keep, indefinitely, the recollections of a lifetime." Holt previously won a AAAS science journalism award in 2002 for a WGBH/NOVA program on "18 Ways to Make a Baby."

The judges also awarded a "Certificate of Merit" for an entry by producer Vince Patton of Oregon Public Broadcasting and videographers Nick Fisher, Michael Bendixen and Todd Sonflieth. In two reports for OPB's "Oregon Field Guide" program, on 4 February 2010[link: www.opb.org/programs/ofg/segments/view/1735] and18 February 2010[link: www.opb.org/programs/ofg/segments/view/1741], Patton and colleagues showed the unanticipated impact of the bald eagle's recovery on the breeding success of seabirds called common murres and a dedicated graduate student's dogged pursuit of pygmy owls in a forest habitat on the edge of downtown Portland. Science reporter Seth Borenstein of The Associated Press called the reports "charming, lovely storytelling with a wonderful, leisurely pacing."

"The Human Spark"
6, 12, and 20 January 2010

This wide-ranging series asked basic questions about what makes us human and how our ancestors evolved with a spark of ingenuity and intelligence that set them apart from other species, including the Neanderthals with which they co-existed for a time. The series looked at what we share in common and what sets us apart from chimpanzees, considered our closest living relatives. And it discussed the latest imaging methods that are giving neuroscientists insights into the brain mechanisms that account for language, one of the most fundamental aspects of the human spark. Dan Vergano, a science writer for USA Today called the winning entry "a sprawling, ambitious look at what makes us human."
