About the Award

Beginning in 2010, the National Society of Newspaper Columnists established its Legacy Award, to honor members primarily for significant, long-term contributions to the NSNC.

The Legacy is not necessarily an annual award. The NSNC board selects the recipients, and welcomes informal nominations.
