Help the University of Georgia select the next winner of the McGill Medal for Journalistic Courage.
This year's medal was awarded to four journalists at the center of the Chauncey Bailey Project. The year before, to Jerry Mitchell, the Jackson Clarion-Ledger reporter who endured death threats as he helped bring civil rights-era killers to justice.
Here's how you can help: Nominate one or more journalists for the 2011 medal. The criteria is simple: The medal honors a working U.S. journalist whose career has exemplified journalistic courage.
Please send your nominations to Professor John F. Greenman at [email protected]. Tell him the journalist's name, where the journalist works, how to contact the journalist, and why you think the journalist is worthy of this honor. A few sentences are all we need for now.
