The series of articles that ran in Better Roads‘ “Better Bridges” section in 2010 has been nominated for a Jesse H. Neal Award from the American Business Media (ABM) in the “Best Series of Subject-Related Articles” category.
The Jesse H. Neal Awards, which have been called “the Pulitzer Prize of the business media,” are among the industry’s most prestigious and sought-after editorial honors. Named after ABM’s first managing director, who remained active in promoting the business media throughout his life, the Neal Awards were established in 1955 to recognize and reward editorial excellence in business meda publications.
Better Roads editors and members of the Construction Media Division of its parent company, Randall-Reilly Publishing Co., will attend a luncheon on March 10 in New York City to learn whether the series of articles takes the top prize.
