NPR reporter Chiara Eisner offered to help local reporters who couldn't afford to apply for journalism contests.
If you're a local reporter who wants to apply for something & can't for lack of funds, DM/email me! If you're a national reporter willing to contribute $ to support local reporters who want to apply for something but have fewer resources, DM/email me!
Eisner recognized that local reporters often can't afford to apply for as many awards and wanted to help.
I know that local reporters work extremely hard and do extremely valuable work and sometimes they don't get the recognition they deserve because they can't afford to apply for as many awards.
