In the battle that undid testing in Texas, a grass-roots group formed in Austin played an indispensable role

Comments from the Judges:

“The online presentation was excellent, with fine graphics (shout out to the designer for the bubble-test border and the excellent mugshot treatments and testing history timeline, also using a testing scorecard motif). The writing was excellent: clear, compelling, approachable, with a conversational, but compelling voice. Great use of quotes throughout, and additional graphic elements. Also appreciated that each part of the story provided catch-up info for new readers. Just stellar.”
