Following Covid Money in Education

Comments from the Judges:

“Nice job of data gathering to provide context around eligibility/allocations/spending, for the enterprise stories that accompanied this data.”

“Really nice visual presentation of a strong dataset using several different formats.  I love the way they’ve done the work and made it relatively easy for the public to see the results, should they choose to explore.”

Teachers Share Their Experiences Working During the Pandemic: Covid Confessions

Comments from the Judges:

“I was impressed by the progression of the piece. We learn how much these teachers care about their students and their mental health. The final shift is to the larger picture of social inequities and the remarkable optimism that America will respond once made aware of the inequities.”

“Very nice job getting educators, who were undergoing unprecedented circumstances, to talk candidly, (which) is difficult. “
