The supplies are rolling in. At 1 p.m. on a Thursday, three delivery trucks line College Avenue. Around the corner, five more clog East Clayton Street. In downtown Athens, the center lane belongs to those who bring the booze.

Comments from the Judges:

“Big look at an important but tough-to-report issue.” 

“Superb, timely and important. A comprehensive and highly readable examination of one of the biggest, most persistent problems in college life. Visually compelling as well, and the series is cohesive. Great access to a variety of sources, too. Just outstanding work.” 

EWA is grateful to the College Board for its generous support of the 2016 National Awards for Education Reporting.
