The awards were developed by Carnegie Mellon and the Newseum, an interactive museum of news in Arlington, Va., to honor editors, reporters and producers who have done the most to educate the public by giving readers and viewers a better understanding of America's ongoing war against terrorism.

A panel of judges was chaired by Pradeep Khosla, co-director of Carnegie Mellon's CyLab and the Dowd Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon, and Susan Bennett, veteran journalist and director of international exhibits at the Newseum. The judges included David Ensor, a national security correspondent with CNN; Marilyn Thompson, assistant managing editor of investigative reporting at The Washington Post; Carol Giacomo, diplomatic correspondent for Reuters; and Mark Thompson, national security correspondent for Time magazine.

Judging was based on several criteria, including deadline pressures and content. All finalists demonstrated the ability to explain complex issues through clearly defined examples
