    It’s back. Join your friends and colleagues as we roll out the red carpet for Seattle’s biggest journalist party of the year: The Holiday Scoop 2011.

    Let’s celebrate the holidays, great journalism and the successes of our local news organizations with emcees Lori Matsukawa of KING TV and Dave Ross of KIRO FM.

    Nosh on hors d’oeuvres and drink at our no-host bar.

    This event is not sponsored by any company or organization, but is being funded by private donations from your journalism colleagues, program ad sales and your donation of $20 per person. The suggested donation will rise to $30 at the door on the night of the event.

    New this year: Caption contest. Entries cost $10, and you can pay the entry fee in advance or at the party.

    Also new: Holiday Karaoke Throwdown. Does your newsroom have the pipes for our karaoke showdown? Individuals or groups can enter to compete our holiday carol karaoke competition for $40. Winner gets bragging rights.

    All proceeds will benefit the Northwest Journalists of Color Scholarship, a 25-year program for talented college students who aspire to become professional journalists.
