Daily Trust - - IT WORLD - By Hus­saini Garba Mo­hammed

The Nige­rian Acad­emy of Science (NAS) Me­dia Awards is sched­uled to hold on Thurs­day in La­gos.

The an­nual event has been a plat­form for out­stand­ing science re­porters who pub­lish science or science-re­lated sto­ries (health, en­vi­ron­ment etc.) in the pre­vi­ous year.

The top prize con­sists of a plaque, a tablet com­puter and N200 ,000 each for print and broad­cast cat­e­gories. The run­ner-up in each cat­e­gory wins a tablet com­puter and N50, 000.

Ac­cord­ing to an in­vi­ta­tion let­ter signed by Mobo­laji Dasaolu, Ad­min­is­tra­tive Of­fi­cer (Com­mu­ni­ca­tions), the Nige­rian Acad­emy of Science (NAS) Me­dia Awards was es­tab­lished by the Nige­rian Acad­emy of Science in 2010 for out­stand­ing science re­port­ing. The yearly award, now in its 7th edi­tion seeks to pro­mote ex­cel­lence in science and science-re­lated jour­nal­ism.
