Katzell Media Award – Call for Nominations
The Raymond A. Katzell Media Award in I–O Psychology is designed to recognize evidenced-based news, feature stories, and editorials in any medium that advance both the science and practice of I-O psychology. Those eligible for the award include science or business writers, reporters, television writers, directors, producers, and any other member of the media.
This is a new award, and awareness needs to be raised! Therefore, all SIOP members are encouraged to submit nominations!
By nominating a deserving recipient, you will help the media community, as well as the general public, learn about the Katzell Media Award, which will help establish it as a known, prestigious honor.
To submit a nomination, please visit SIOP’s Awards Online Web page.
Nominations must include a copy of the publication and the name of the nominee. The Katzell Media Award Committee will review all nominations received by the deadline of March 1, 2008.
Then, one member of the media will be chosen as the 2008 recipient. Selection criteria is based on a publication that has more than a local distribution, is well executed, and features I-O psychology research or practice with a sound scientific and technical basis.
The elected recipient will receive a cash prize of $3,000 and will be invited to attend the 2008 SIOP Annual Conference in San Francisco to receive the award and make a presentation. Up to $1,000 will be awarded for travel expenses to the annual conference.
In addition to the Katzell Media Award, SIOP encourages you to submit nominations for other awards too, including the Small Grants Program, Graduate Student Scholarships, and the Leslie W. Joyce and Paul W. Thayer Graduate Fellowship. The nomination deadline for these awards is also Feb. 1, 2008.
