The Sigma Delta Chi Foundation calls application for the Eugene S. Pulliam First Amendment Award to honor a person or persons who have fought to protect and preserve one or more of the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment.


Annually at the Society of Professional Journalists National Convention, the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation will honor an individual, group of individuals, or organization with a $10,000 cash award and an engraved crystal. The honoree also will receive transportation (airfare and two-night hotel stay) to the national convention. However, additional travel costs are the responsibility of the award recipient.
