Awards

David W. Miller Award for Young Journalists

2015 - Responsible journalism, curiosity, great writing
With the award, The Chronicle seeks to honor Mr. Miller's insistence on responsible journalism, curiosity about people and ideas, and commitment to great writing. The Chronicle also hopes to encourage future generations of reporters who show those qualities. The award is given annually to a recent Chronicle intern, based on three articles submitted by the candidate. The award commemorates David W. Miller, a senior writer at The Chronicle who was killed in 2002 by a drunken driver. Mr. Miller, who was 35, was returning from a reporting assignment and was survived by his widow and two young sons.
