Comments from the Judges

“The breadth of this entry and its depth really captivated me. I liked how each piece focused on a small group or an individual and then widened it out into the communities and experts.”

“This is the strongest example of writing and reporting in this category. And I loved that this piece looked at issues from the teens’ perspective and involved so many teens.”
