Media Club of Ottawa Awards Program
The Margaret Graham Award, presented each year by the Media Club of Ottawa honours the memory of Margaret “Miggsy” Graham, a pioneer woman journalist who played a leading role in the formation of the Canadian Women’s Press Club (CWPC), forerunner of the Media Club of Canada.
The first time the Margaret Graham Award was presented by the then Ottawa Branch of the CWPC was in 1976. It was awarded for the best feature story written by a male or female reporter with less than three year’s experience who was employed by an Ottawa area daily or weekly newspaper. Lynda Florence won for a story she wrote for the Kingston News.
The Margaret Graham Award was formally established in 1977. Initially the Club gave annual cash awards to a journalism student from Carleton University and a print journalism student attending Algonquin College. In 1992 the award was broadened to include a University of Ottawa communications student. The students who receive awards are selected by their school for their academic success and overall excellence.
