For more than a decade, The Kneeland Project has trained, supported, and guided news managers in all fifty states through the tricky maze of ethical, accurate, and fair reporting. Like our namesake, we believe in the highest accountability in journalism and espouses the ideals of integrity, balance, and innovation.
As such, The Kneeland Project has been privileged to participate in many award programs over the past decade. For most of that time, The Dallas Press Club awarded The Carole Kneeland Award to newsrooms who exemplified the values of Carole Kneeland.
Today, the Texas AP Broadcasters/Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas Award is presented yearly in memory of Carole to honor outstanding efforts by a radio or television station on Freedom of Information issues. Every year, the TAPB and FOIFT honors Carole's legacy of newsroom excellence by recognizing outstanding efforts by a Texas radio or television station on Freedom of Information issues.
Winning entries may include excellent issue coverage, outstanding commentary, legal action taken by the entrant in the interest of the public's right to know, or a continuing effort by the entrant on behalf of Freedom of Information issues.
