We offer awards for both of WSCA publications, Western Journal of Communication and Communication Reports, to recognize the top articles published each year.

The winners of the Western Journal of Communication Fisher Award are Ryan Neville-Shepard, “Rand Paul at Howard University and the Rhetoric of the New Southern Strategy,” (volume 82, number 1, January-February 2018, 20-39) and Mary E. Triece, Constructing the Antiracial City-City Planning and Antiracialism in the 21st Century,” (volume 82, number 5, October-December 2018, 613-630).  Dr. Neville-Shepard is an assistant professor of Communication at the University of Arkansas.  Dr. Triece is a Professor in the School of Communication and the Director of the Women’s Studies Program at the University of Akron. 

 

The Communication Reports Milton Dickins Award winner was Norman Wong at the University of Oklahoma, with his article: "'Vaccinations are Safe and Effective:'" Inoculating Positive HPV Vaccine Attitudes Against Antivaccination Attack Messages."

Each essay makes an important contribution to our understanding of contemporary communication.
