Support Your Local Journalist

The Northwest Arkansas Gridiron is a fundraiser for the local chapters of the Society of Professional Journalists and the American Association of University Women.

The Society of Professional Journalists provides ongoing training for professional journalists, advocacy related to First Amendment issues and funding for scholarships for students attending the Walter J. Lemke Department of Journalism at the University of Arkansas.

The American Association of University Women provides funding for the Single Parent Scholarship Fund, the AAUW scholarship at the University of Arkansas, and the AAUW Educational Foundation and Legal Advocacy Fund.

To support these causes:

  • Come see the Northwest Gridiron each year. Tickets go on sale at the beginning of September each year. Cost is $25.
  • Make a gift to either organization.
  • Read your newspaper, watch the evening news, listen to NPR, be an informed citizen.
