Debra E. Bernhardt Labor Journalism Prize – Call for Entries!

The New York Labor History Association is pleased to announce the Third Annual Debra E. Bernhardt Labor Journalism Prize.

The Bernhardt Prize is an award of $500 given to an article or series of articles that furthers the understanding of the history of working people. Articles focused on historical events AND articles about current issues (work, housing, organizing, health, education, and also workers’ organizations and unions) that include historical context are both welcome. The work should be published – in print or online – in a union or workers’ center publication or by an independent/free-lance journalist. By sponsoring this award we hope to inspire more great writing for a general audience about the history of work, workers, and their organizations. The award is co-sponsored by LaborArts; Metro New York Labor Communications Council; the NYC Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO; and the Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives at NYU’s Tamiment Library.

The deadline is August 1, 2017 – enter now at
