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.
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.
