Snake River Pro Chapter Supports “Right to Know” in Death Penalty Cases

The death penalty is the most extreme action a state may undertake. All of the steps required in carrying out that penalty are subject to legal review and have been, in fact, at the heart of legal battles over the penalty’s Constitutionality in state after state. The press serves as a monitor – a watchdog – on government’s actions on behalf of Idaho’s citizens who have an undeniable right to know that the death penalty is being administered properly, in conformance to law and Constitutional requirements. Idaho’s press does not seek access for its own ends, but rather to serve the interests of citizens.

Congratulations to our 2009 NW Excellence in Journalism Contest winners!

This year our 2009 NW Excellence in Journalism Contest brought in 2,500 entries from Region 10, including entries from Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. The entries were submitted online for the first time this year, and judged online as well by journalists around the country. It was a big effort, but well worth it to be able to honor the very best in journalist in our corner of the world.

For those of you who were not able to attend the Portland or Seattle chapters’ May 22 awards banquets, or who belong to a chapter that doesn’t host an awards ceremony, we are pleased to be able to share the winners of this year’s Region 10 SPJ contest with you.

Congratulations to all of those who submitted entries this year! We are honored to work along side you!
