First Amendment Protectors Sought

The Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications seeks to honor New Hampshire residents who have worked to protect free speech and free press.

Nominations are open for the school’s annual First Amendment Award, honoring diligence in protecting free press and free speech liberties.

Nominees will be recognized November 20 at an awards dinner featuring Howard Fineman, Newsweek’s Chief Political Correspondent and Deputy Washington Bureau Chief and NBC news analyst.

The award and the Manchester-based school are legacies of the late Nackey S. Loeb, president and publisher of the New Hampshire Union Leader and Sunday News.

Past recipients include former New Hampshire Attorney General Philip McLaughlin, former Keene Sentinel Executive Editor Thomas F. Kearney, The Laconia Citizen, political activist and former legislator Daniel Hughes and Dover City Councilor David Scott.

The recipients and other honorees are chosen from citizen nominations. They receive a limited edition bronze eagle sculpture. The top First Amendment award winner also receives $1500. The deadline for nominations is Aug. 31.

Award details and applications are available at or by calling the school at 627-0005.

The non-profit Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications, Inc. was founded in 1999 to foster interest, integrity and excellence in journalism and other forms of communication. All programs uphold the principles of free speech and a free press, essential for an informed citizenry

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
