SABEW now seeking entries for Birger Award
The Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing is now accepting entries for the Larry Birger Young Business Journalist Award, which honors the top business journalist under the age of 30.
The fifth annual awards contest can be entered here. The winner will receive $1,500 plus an expense-paid trip to SABEW’s next conference where the award will be presented.
