Comments from the Judges
“Great job documenting an array of student voices on a plethora of topics. It’s refreshing to see a new style of storytelling that raises awareness about issues that matter.”
“I love how the reporter approached this project by having the voices as the focus of the stories and not the reporter doing an interview.”
