KCPW, Partners Share Pulitzer Prize Centennial Grant

PulitzerCentennialKCPW is pleased to announce that in conjunction with Utah Humanities, the Salt Lake Tribune and Utah Public Radio, we are the recipients of a Centennial Campfires Initiative Grant from the Pulitzer Prizes.

What does that mean? Additional collaborations between grantees, for one – including live broadcasts, a look at political satire from Salt Lake Tribune Political Cartoonist (and 2014 Pulitzer Prize finalist) Pat Bagley, a spotlight on privacy and government surveillance, and more. Additional projects will be announced throughout the year. Find out more about the grant and our expanded collaboration in this article from the Salt Lake Tribune.

This program is made possible by a grant to Utah Humanities as part of the Pulitzer Prizes Centennial Campfires Initiative, a joint venture of the Pulitzer Prizes Board and the Federation of State Humanities Council in celebration of the 2016 centennial of the Prizes. The initiative seeks to illuminate the impact of journalism and the humanities on American life today, to imagine their future and to inspire new generations to consider the values represented by the body of Pulitzer Prize-winning work. This year-long project in Utah is a collaboration between Utah Humanities, the Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Public Radio, and KCPW.

For their generous support for the Campfires Initiative, we thank the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Ford Foundation, Carnegie Corporation of New York, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Pulitzer Prizes Board, and Columbia University.
