DIJ logo Publication Awards DCA logo

The Distinction in Journalism Award was formerly presented by the USPS Publications Committee (PubCom) to districts and squadrons in recognition of outstanding performance in the practice of United States Power Squadrons journalism. PubCom became part of the USPS Communications Committee (CommCom) in 2010 where CommCom has reviewed District and Squadron newsletters and selected those publications which merit special recognition for sustained quality throughout the year that not only promote life within the United States Power Squadrons® but also instill interest and inspire and encourage members of the public to take courses and join our organization. The new award is called the Distinctive Communicator Award.
