Pulitzer 100

Celebrating the Pulitzer Centennial

Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH) received $125,000 in support of a series of VFH programs commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Pulitzer Prizes in 2016 through Pulitzer’s Campfires Initiative.

The series included a two-part program during the  Virginia Festival of the Book (March 2016) featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning poets and authors, a special Centennial-edition trio of poetry broadsides produced at the  Virginia Arts of the Book Center (VABC), eight nationally-broadcast episodes of the With Good Reason radio program featuring Pulitzer Prize winners, and a special live event in Washington D.C. by BackStory with the American History Guys on the history and impact of the Prizes.

“We are delighted to commemorate the historic Pulitzer Centennial with VFH programming that will reach audiences near and far, through large-scale public events, one-of-a-kind broadsides, and radio broadcasts and podcasts,” said VFH president Robert C. Vaughan. “This exciting national initiative will inspire new generations to make connections and discoveries as together we explore the values represented by Pulitzer Prize-winning work.”
