MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Oct. 25, 2016) — The Stuttering Foundation, www.StutteringHelp.org, announced the winners of its 2016 Awards for Excellence in Journalism today in celebration of International Stuttering Awareness Day.

"The more we talk about stuttering, the more we build support for the stuttering community," said Jane Fraser, president of the nonprofit Foundation. "The media, both traditional and digital, have the ability to start important conversations, inform the public, and inspire us all.

This year, the Foundation has decided to bestow three levels of honor in each media category: winner, runner up and honorable mention. All entries ran or appeared between August 1, 2015 – September 30, 2016.
