If your organization has outstanding work that holds important local institutions accountable for their actions, then consider submitting it to the Frank A. Blethen Award for Local Accountability Reporting category in the 2018 ASNE Awards by 11:59 p.m. EST Tuesday, Jan. 30.
The reporting should be investigative in nature, and judges will give preference to work that made a demonstrable difference in the news organization's community. The work needs to be anchored in a community that is the primary audience of the publication, and this local reporting is the focus of this reward. However, national or international reporting that springs from that local core may also be included in the entry.

Last year, the award went to the staff of The Salt Lake Tribune for their relentless coverage of how Brigham Young University and Utah State University botched investigations into sexual abuse complaints.
