Our annual convention provides exposure to some of the most respected writing, editing, broadcast and public relations authorities from the region through panel discussions in such cities as Denver, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Dallas, Minneapolis, New York, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago and Seattle.
The 2015 convention was held at the Grand Hyatt in Denver during Memorial Day weekend. Check out coverage from Denver.
Scholarships & internships
AWSM established an internship/scholarship program in 1990 for female college students interested in sports media careers. We have placed nearly 140 students in internships with employers such as Sports Illustrated, ESPN, MLB.com, USA Swimming, the Minnesota Vikings and some of the nation’s most respected newspapers. We invite all students to become members for a discounted rate, in order to take advantage of our networking and mentoring opportunities.
Jobs and mid-career training
AWSM members can receive job listing information, as we get them, through our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn group. Mid-career training opportunities are also shared on the AWSM website throughout the year, and grants are available to assist members.
AWSM members have access to an online membership directory (membership required to access), regular digital e-newsletters and other support as needed.
Whether you’re a student or a professional, a woman or a man, interested in seeking our help or in helping us make sports media an option open to anyone who wants a rewarding career, we invite you to join us.
