- The New England First Amendment award is presented to a New England newspaper for the exceptional quality of its reporting, editorials, commentary or legal challenges that illuminate or uphold the First Amendment or educate the public about it.
- The Allan B. Roger Editorial award recognizes the best editorial of the year in New England. The competition is open to local subject editorials from a wide variety of newspapers in New England, regardless of circulation size and frequency of publication.
- The AP Sevellon Brown Journalist of the Year award is bestowed by the New England Society of News Editors, and it recognizes an individual for producing journalism of distinction in New England this past year.
- The Bob Wallack Community Journalism award recognizes an individual who has an exceptional record of commitment to community journalism.
Radically Rural, the annual two-day summit focused on issues and opportunities in small cities and towns, opens Sept. 19 and is expected to attract 800 people from the Monadnock Region, the Northeast and throughout the country.
Radically Rural will again feature sessions on local news reporting. This year, five sessions will focus on newsrooms’ collaborations, solutions journalism, “crazy good” ideas for revenue, audience and content, funding journalism and a general session on fueling rural entrepreneurship.
The Keene Sentinel and Hannah Grimes planned the first Radically Rural conference last year, focusing on five topic areas critical to most small cities and towns across the country – downtown vitality, successful working lands’ policies and practices, thriving arts and cultural enclaves, innovation and entrepreneurship, and community journalism.
