Smith Wins APEX Award
Pam Smith, a contributing writer for Coastwatch magazine, received a 2012 APEX Award for Publication Excellence in feature writing.
She was recognized for her article titled "Citizen Science Bolsters Oyster Restoration Efforts" in the Spring 2011 issue of Coastwatch.
"Pam has an eye — and an ear — for detail that brings her features to life," says Katie Mosher, Sea Grant communications director. "She truly enjoys sharing stories that reveal citizen participation in coastal science."
Although she retired from North Carolina Sea Grant in 2005, Smith continues to contribute articles to Coastwatch on a regular basis, and also is involved in editing Sea Grant-related projects.
APEX Awards are based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content and the ability to achieve overall communications excellence. In 2012, more than 3,300 submissions were received, with 1,027 Awards of Excellence and 100 APEX Grand Awards presented.
