The Nigerian Academy of Science (NAS) established the NAS Science Media Award to promote excellence in science and science-related journalism. Entries for these awards are invited for outstanding science reporting. The award is open to all print and broadcast journalists who published science or science-related stories (health, environment etc.) in the year 2017. The prize consists of a plaque; cash prize each for print and broadcast categories, plus gift package from Vitafoam. Runner-up in each category wins cash prize and a gift package from Vitafoam.
NAS had entered into agreement with Vitafoam Nigeria Plc earlier in the year. The relationship is in furtherance of Vitafoam’s corporate social responsibility to maximise the benefits of science and increase the awareness of such benefits which will result in increased support for the development and application of science in the society.
