The Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) has announced two winners of the Goldsmith Books Prize and six finalists for the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting.
The Goldsmith Prizes are underwritten by an annual gift from the Goldsmith Fund of the Greenfield Foundation. The book prizes, which include an award of $5,000, were created to honor the best academic and trade books of the year on journalism. The Investigative Reporting Prize, which carries a $10,000 award for finalists, and a $25,000 award for winners, is intended to recognize and encourage journalism that promotes more effective and ethical conduct of government, the making of public policy, or the practice of politics by disclosing excessive secrecy, impropriety and mismanagement, or instances of particularly commendable government performance. The winner of the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting will be announced at an awards ceremony on March 23 at HKS.
