[SUPREME] Nomination Forms Available for Journalist and Judge Excellence Awards

Entry Description
The Indiana Judges Association (IJA) is accepting nominations for the 2012 Commendation for Excellence in Public Information and Education.  Each year the Association honors a journalist and judge who have helped inform the public about the work of the Indiana courts. The deadline for applications is Friday, July 6th.  

The criteria and application forms are available online at http://courts.in.gov/2802.htm.  There are two award categories, one for journalists and one for judges.  The Community Relations Committee of the Indiana Judicial Conference selects the award recipients. Indiana Judges Association President, Marion County Judge Robyn Moberly, explained, “These awards are an opportunity for us to thank those judges and journalists who take extra steps to help the public understand the work of the courts.” 

Journalist nominees are judged on breadth and depth of the effort, quality, ingenuity and public response.  The committee is looking for television, newspaper, radio and Internet journalists or news organizations that have exhibited responsible reporting of Indiana courts.  The committee is also looking for judges who have conducted programs, projects or sustained efforts to educate the public about the courts.

The Indiana Judges Association has given the awards since 1988.  The 2011 recipients were Harold J. Adams of The Courier-Journal in Louisville for his reporting on trial court statistics and the plea bargaining process and Judge Nancy E. Boyer of Allen Superior Court for her work with the Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention Program.  Photographs of both recipients can be found on the Supreme Court Flickr page here http://www.flickr.com/photos/incourts/sets/72157627969460930

The Indiana Judges Association was established in 1934. Its purpose is to cultivate the acquaintance of Indiana judges; to assist each other in mutual problems; to work with representatives of the state agencies for the improvement of Indiana government; to provide a source of judicial membership for committees outside the Association and to exert a coordinated effort toward better and simpler administration of justice and clearer, more uniform procedures in all courts. The IJA is funded by dues from members.
