Hooray! Journalism Awards Announced

I’m pleased to relay that I’ve received a few different awards for both solo work and collaborative journalism projects. UW-Milwaukee’s Pow Wow Has Deep American Indian Roots received the Best Soft Feature award by Milwaukee Press Club. The Finding Flint project received several awards from the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ). Photographs I took forĀ this piece received a Feature Photography award by SPJ.

All told, UWM journalism students have been awarded a total of 42 local, statewide, or regional awards. The instructors at UW-Milwaukee are doing a great job of getting us ready to head out into the working world.

Here is the full list of awards that can currently be posted publicly.

Flint Water Woes and the Economy

 

I joined several other UW-Milwaukee students in visiting Flint, Michigan to find out lead in the water has affected their lives. Through the eyes of a men’s hat store in downtown Flint, The Mad Hatter, find out how downtown businesses are coping with the this problem.
