Each year, the Tulsa Chapter hosts the Newsmakers luncheon to present outstanding, selected women communicators with the Newsmaker Awards and the Saidie Lifetime Achievement Award. 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. 

Our three 2018 Newsmakers are Tulsa City Councilor and Child Abuse Network Executive Director, Anna America; Executive Director of Magic City Books and the Tulsa Literary Coalition, Cindy Hulsey; and Dr. Kayse Shrum, President of the OSU Center for Health Sciences and Dean of the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine. 

The 2018 Sadie Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient is Carole Lambert, news anchor and producer of award winning series. 

Come celebrate with us and honor four extraordinary women at the 45th Annual, 2018 AWC Newsmakers Awards Luncheon!

Thank you to our generous sponsors for helping provide scholarships to female communications students.
