Comments from the Judges
“Nuanced, contextual, informed by history, and featuring some nicely intimate touches that really great radio is so good at.”
“Excellent package. The sections on the Plyer v. Texas case and Freedom U. really bolster the argument for this documentary.”
EWA is grateful to the College Board for its generous support of the 2017 National Awards for Education Reporting.
