MNSPJ invites you to the Page One Awards banquet

The Board of Directors of the Minnesota Pro chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists is pleased to invite you to the 2016 Page One Awards banquet, celebrating the best in Minnesota journalism.

This year’s banquet will be held June 15 at Town & Country Club in St. Paul. The event will start with a reception at 5:30 p.m., with dinner being served at 7 p.m.

Price for dinner this year will be $55 for non-SPJ members and just $40 for SPJ members — a $5 reduction from the cost in 2014 and 2015.

In addition to honoring the best in Minnesota journalism, MNSPJ will award two $2,000 scholarships. Funding those scholarships is the annual Silent Auction. If you can help us with items for our silent auction, please email Donations will be accepted through June 1 — and every bit helps us help upcoming journalists.

Keynoting this year’s banquet is Jonathan Capehart, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and member of the Washington Post editorial board who writes about politics and social issues for the PostPartisan blog.

To register for this year’s banquet, please complete this form by June 8, 2016. If you or your organization is interested in purchasing a table for the event — which comes at a discount on the non-member price — please email MNSPJ at
