Excellence in the Reporting of Social Issues Award

Lee Rainie (Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project)

The Award for Excellence in the Reporting of Social Issues honors 
individuals for their promotion of sociological findings and a broader 
vision of sociology. The ASA would like to recognize the contributions of 
those who have been especially effective in disseminating sociological 
perspectives and research. The ASA is cognizant of the fact that there are 
many professionals (e.g., journalists, filmmakers) whose job it is to 
translate and interpret a wide range of information, including 
sociological perspectives and research, for the general public.
