Popovich Award, MN SPJ’s most prestigious award, honoring a person or organization that exemplifies the fight for First Amendment Rights.

We will also hold our fourth annual SPJ Page One Silent Auction to benefit our student scholarship fund. Come prepared to bid on some great items for a great cause! Proceeds allow Minnesota SPJ to award scholarships to Minnesota students studying to enter the field of journalism.
