For more than 15 years, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has honored journalists for outstanding news coverage that has enhanced the public’s understanding of the role and impact of civil engineers and civil engineering in designing solutions for clean water, transportation, the environment and other public works projects. ASCE’s Excellence in Journalism Award is given to a journalist(s) or producer(s) from an English-language, general interest regional or national newspaper, radio or television station, magazine (non-trade), or electronic or Web-based news outlet.
