Judges’ Comments:

“This was hands-down one of the most creative and innovative approaches I’ve seen to storytelling among all the [ed-experts] entries.”

“I really liked this approach and the vast range of stories that it enabled. What’s more, [the writers] present really interesting, well-written stories about real people doing interesting or meaningful things around the nation. There is an attention to detail and an eye for compelling anecdote that is missing from an awful lot of this type of coverage.”
