Comments from the Judges:

“Terrific mix of storytelling, solid reporting and gritty facts. Also strong graphics, photos and videos. A great, beautifully produced project.”

“Whole package, writing, design, and video, are exceptionally strong. Well written throughout. Access is remarkable and the homeless families are shown as complicated people, not flat cliches. Scene with the social worker coming by the motel is heartbreaking, great immersive reporting.”

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