The Washington Press Club Foundation administers two prestigious awards for journalists.
The Washington Press Club Foundation presents the Lifetime Achievement Award every year at the Congressional Dinner. This award recognizes an individual whose outstanding accomplishments promote the journalistic profession and enhance the role of women journalists.
The David Lynch Regional Reporting Award is given annually to a Washington-based daily print reporter. It recognizes excellence in coverage of Congress from a regional perspective and work that best exemplifies David Lynch's thorough and incisive regional news coverage of Congress, and the insight his writing provided into how actions on Capitol Hill have a direct impact on local communities and their citizens.
