Award Recipients

IFWTWA sponsors two awards programs: the Excellence in Journalism Award (EIJ Award) and the Hospitality Education Scholarship Award. The EIJ Award recognizes members for exceptional journalism through a self-nomination process. Nominations are carefully evaluated by IFWTWA’s Excellence Awards Committee. Award criteria and nomination guidelines can be found at: http://ifwtwa.org/excellence-in-journalism-award. The Hospitality Education Scholarship Award recipient is selected annually by the IFWTWA Board of Directors; the award goes to a deserving hospitality, tourism, culinary or viticulture or oenology student at an educational institution.
