ONF and OPA are now accepting nominations for the annual Beachy Musselman Award and Quarter and Half Century Clubs. Any professional journalist is eligible to be nominated for the Musselman Award, which includes a $1,000 cash prize. Extra consideration is given on the basis of service to the community, initiative in reporting, photographing or interpreting the news. The Quarter Century Club and Half Century Club recognize individuals that have served in the newspaper industry for at least 25 or 50 years. Anyone may make nominations, and self-nominations are also welcome.
Nominations must be received by the Oklahoma Press Association by Feb. 27, 2012. Awards will be presented June 8, 2012, at the annual convention's awards banquet.
