The George Polk awards are conferred annually to honor special achievement in journalism. Winners are chosen from newspapers, magazines, television, radio and online news organizations. Judges place a premium on investigative work that is original, requires digging and resourcefulness, and brings results.
"LIU’s George Polk Awards highlights the continued relevance of high-quality journalism and how those individuals seek to improve communities and impact the daily lives of many. The Long Island University community is honored to recognize the skilled and dedicated journalists who create endless opportunities to access information and news from around the globe."
