About the Award

Each year, the National Press Foundation presents the Thomas L. Stokes Award to a journalist for the best writing on the subject of energy. The Stokes Award was established in the spring of 1959 by friends and admirers of the late Thomas L. Stokes, the syndicated Washington columnist on national affairs. It was to be given annually for the best writing "in the independent spirit of Tom Stokes" on subjects of interest to him including energy and natural resources. The winner of the Award receives $1,000 and a citation. The subject may be any form of energy—oil, gas, coal, nuclear, water, solar, etc. The writing may be reporting, analysis or commentary and can consist of one to three articles on unrelated subjects, or one series of articles on a related subject.
