The Board of the National Numeracy Network is pleased to announce the inaugural 2012 Steen Award winner. Named for Lynn Steen, one of the early leaders of the quantitative literacy movement and author of many influential works promoting QL, the award goes to the best article from the most recent volume of the NNN's journal Numeracy as judged by the Awards Subcommittee.

This year's award, selected from articles in Volume V, published during 2012, goes to Annamaria Lusardi, Professor of Economics and Accountancy at the George Washington University School of Business, for her article, "Numeracy, Financial Literacy, and Financial Decision-Making," Vol. 5, Issue 1, January 2012.

Although Numeracy has been published since January of 2008, this is the first time NNN has provided special recognition for authors. The Board intends to continue this award annually, and to provide a special one-time award for the best article selected from the first four years of publication. Award winners will be invited to a special presentation acknowledging their accomplishment at the NNN's National Meeting.
