The ABSW is supporting an award for best science/technology section or publication, and for best science/technology writer at the annual student journalism awards.

This is part of ABSW’s long term commitment to recognising and nurturing new talent and a new generation of science journalists. It is the third year in a row that ABSW has partnered up with Student Publications Association (SPA) to support such prizes, and it is in addition to ABSW’s own awards, which include best student and best newcomer categories.

SPA is the UK and Ireland's largest student media association. It supports student journalism, media, and production.

Previous winners of the ABSW-backed SPA awards included:

Brittany Harrison, The Boar

Marianna Marcelline, Glasgow Guardian

Amber Spence, The Boar

Emila Rose, Redbrick

Joseph McGrory, Redbrick

Katrina Wesencraft, The Gist

SPA awards will soon open for entry, and the winners will be announced at the SPA’s National Conference 2019 at the University of York (5-7 April, 2019).
