Eveland Given 2007 Krieghbaum Under-40 Award

In the field of communication, there are a couple of awards that are given to scholars who represent the essence and spirit of scholarship and service to the field. One of those awards is the Krieghbaum Under 40 Award from the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication. I am pleased and excited to report that this year, Chip Eveland is being honored with this award at the 2007 conference in DC. This award "honors AEJMC members under 40 years of age who have shown outstanding achievement and effort in all three AEJMC areas: teaching, research and public service" (AEJMC call for nominees). Congratulations to Chip! Chip is the second COPS member to receive this award (Carroll Glynn was given this award in 1992).

Best Published Paper in Political Communication 2006

COPS has another winner. I've just learned that the Political Communication divisions of ICA and APSA have named Young Mie Kim's recent Journal of Politics paper the 2006 top paper in political communication. This is of all papers published in the area of political communication during 2006, not just all papers submitted to these two association conferences. This is a very prestigous award. Congratulations Young Mie! You might recall that a paper co-authored by Chip Eveland won this award last year.
