Saidie Award

Saidie Lifetime Achievement Award

Each year, the Tulsa Chapter of AWC honors a woman with the Saidie Lifetime Achievement Award who is presented at the annual Newsmakers Award Luncheon. The Saidie Award is named in honor of the first recipient of the award, Saidie Adwon, a pioneer in television, and the first woman general manager of an Oklahoma television station.

The Saidie Award recipient must have made significant contributions to Oklahoma during her career in the communications field and must be philosophically compatible with the goals of AWC. She does not have to be an Oklahoma resident at the time of receiving the award.

We are looking forward to hosting another successful event in May 2019.


Congratulations to our 2018 Saidie Award Winner Carole Lambert!
