The Pulitzer Prize, is an American award regarded as the highest national honor in print journalism, literary achievements, and musical composition. It is administered by Columbia University in New York City.
Prizes are awarded yearly in twenty-one categories.
The prize was established by Joseph Pulitzer, a Hungarian-American journalist and newspaper publisher, who left money to Columbia University upon his death in 1911. A portion of his bequest was used to found the university's journalism school in 1912. The first Pulitzer Prizes were awarded on June 4 1917, and they are now announced each April.

Oklahoma is a state located in the south-central region of the United States of America. Its nickname is the "Sooner State", and is part of a region commonly known as the American "Heartland." Oklahoma City is the state's capital and largest city. However, since Oklahoma is near the geographic center of the U.S., the regional influences add to Oklahoma's unique character.
Oklahoma became the 46th state in the Union on November 16, 1907. The state’s name comes from the Choctaw words okla meaning people and homa meaning red, literally meaning “red people”.
