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
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.
