Saidie Award

Saidie Lifetime Achievement Award

Each year, the Tulsa Chapter of AWC honors a woman with the Saidie Lifetime Achievement Award. The Saidie Award winner is presented at the annual Newsmaker Award Luncheon, a prominent event for the Tulsa metropolitan community. The Saidie Award is named in honor of the first recipient of the award, Saidie Adwon, a pioneer in television, and the first woman general manager of an Oklahoma television station.

The Saidie Award Recipient must have made significant contributions to Oklahoma during her career in the communications field. She must be philosophically compatible with the goals of AWC. She does not have to be an Oklahoma resident at the time of receiving the award.
