Comments from the Judges

“The coverage is enterprising, thorough, gets the point across, and also conveys the complexity of the issue.”

“This body of work highlights aspects of Title IX that aren’t widely understood, such as who is covered and what school officials are obligated to do. The reporting was thorough and explained the issues in a compelling way. It’s not easy to get victims and families to talk about their cases, but the effort paid off in these stories.”
