Journalist Anthony Shadid will be honored posthumously Thursday with the 2012 Reflections of Hope Award.

The award is being given for his life's work as a foreign correspondent, his understanding of the Middle East and his role in giving people affected by terrorism and violence a voice through his storytelling. He was a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist. Shadid died in February while on assignment in Syria. He was 43.

Shadid's widow, Nada Bakri, and children will accept the award on his behalf during a noon luncheon in the Sam Noble Special Events Center at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.

Tickets for the luncheon are $168 each or $3,500 for a patron table of eight.

Shadid will be the eighth recipient of the award, which includes a $25,000 honorarium, name placement on a perpetual award inside the Memorial Museum and a crystal trophy on a base of granite salvaged from the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing in Oklahoma City 17 years ago.

The Reflections of Hope Award, established in 2005, is made possible through the support of the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.
