The Loeb School describes The First Amendment Award as follows:
“Dedication to the protection of the First Amendment freedoms is not accomplished in a day’s work, but rather a lifetime. Recognizing the efforts taken to preserve free speech and press, the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications established the First Amendment Award in 2003. The award honors New Hampshire residents who exemplify freedoms granted in the First Amendment. From a lawyer’s closing remarks, to a professor’s lecture, to concerned citizens’ participation in town governance, New Hampshire residents uphold the First Amendment liberties daily. “
The Telegraph of Nashua received the award for its Open Government Project, described by the newspaper as being “committed to improving citizens’ access to public records through right-to-know law requests, news coverage and education.”
