RTDNF First Amendment Awards


The RTDNF First Amendment Awards honor individuals and organizations for their work on behalf of First Amendment freedom. RTDNF is an advocacy group which supports protecting our First Amendment freedoms and our rights to free and unfettered media. It is also a training and educational organization, which provides thousands of dollars in scholarships each year to the journalists of the future and provides training to both entry-level and experienced media professionals.

A black-tie event is scheduled for Wednesday, March 12 at the Grand Hyatt, 1000 H Street NW in Washington, DC. The reception gets under way at 6:00pm with dinner and the awards ceremony to follow at 7:00pm. Tickets and sponsorships are now available. To purchase individual tickets to the event, complete our online registration form. For more information about how you can be a sponsor, contact RTDNA's Karen Evans.
Your sponsorship support or ticket purchase will go towards programs covering a variety of issues from ethics to financial journalism, newsroom management to international reporting. RTDNF provides practical, “real-world” ways which help students and professionals alike become more proficient at their craft.

Thank you to our First Amendment Dinner sponsors:

The First Amendment Dinner is the single, most important fundraising event sponsored by RTDNF. We depend on the funds raised to support all of our programs and activities.
