This is exactly what teenagers my age should start reading... I also think that classics like Silent Spring and The Origin of Species should be added to the list.

AAAS has opened its Science Journalism Awards to journalists worldwide and increased the prizes and amounts thanks to +The Kavli Foundation.

The AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards represent the pinnacle of achievement for professional journalists in the science writing field. The awards recognize outstanding reporting for a general audience and honor individuals (rather than institutions, publishers or employers) for their coverage of the sciences, engineering and mathematics.
