The highly Anticipated Uganda Wash Media Awards is happening today at Sheraton Hotel in Kampala.
The event is scheduled to begin at exactly 6pm in the evening.
In this year’s edition, the awards were placed under six categories and each category has three top nominees as vetted by the panel of distinguished judges.
Winners in all the six categories will receive a cash prize of shs2.5 million, a certificate of recognition plus other endowments.
Marcia Tusiime, the Environmental Officer at the Ministry of Water & Environment said, “The sure way to articulate WASH in development is to recognise and encourage journalists who look out for and tell the stories about water, sanitation and Hygiene service delivery, and how it affects our socio-economic progress, as individuals, as communities and as a country,”
The Uganda WASH Media Awards first edition took place in 2016 and it was established by the Ministry of Water and Environment together with partners to reward excellent reporting on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene.
