News: National Society of Newspaper Columnists Honors Roger Ebert

On Saturday, June 28, 2014, The National Society of Newspaper Columnists chose to honor the writing of Roger Ebert within their annual column contest. At a ceremony held at Howard University in Washington, DC, Ebert's writing, which had won first place at this event before and had earned Roger the Ernie Pyle Lifetime Achievement Award, demanded attention yet again. He won third place in his category but only because he only had three months eligible in 2013, the period of his writing that proved to be his final one.
