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 2017 National Awards for Education Reporting.
