"I am very pleased that The Kavli Foundation, with goals similar to those of AAAS, has joined in helping us honor such fine examples of science journalism," said Alan I. Leshner, chief executive officer of AAAS and executive publisher of the journal Science. "The winners demonstrate the breadth and depth of contemporary science reporting, even at a time when journalism outlets continue to face daunting economic challenges."

"We are truly delighted to support this award honoring science journalists whose excellence has been recognized by their peers," said Fred Kavli, founder and chairman of The Kavli Foundation. "The ability to communicate science in an understandable, interesting and exciting way is essential to gain the support of the public and the policy-makers, and to stimulate the interest and excitement in our youth to select science careers."

"The AAAS awards have long recognized the importance of high-quality science journalism across the board," said Cristine Russell, president of the nonprofit Council for the Advancement of Science Writing. "The Kavli Foundation's decision to endow the awards is particularly important at a time when accurate, insightful writing about science is threatened by rapid changes in the media marketplace. The future of this program is now assured as a new generation of journalists tackles important science developments and their impact on society."
