The Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) today announced South Sound magazine, based in Tacoma, Wash., was honored for its in-depth report “The State of Family Homelessness in Pierce County,” written by our Seattle University Journalism Fellow Jeff Burlingame.
The awards recognize the nation’s outstanding professional journalism. According to SPJ, the Public Service category is not only judged on the quality of the article, but on evidence of courage and initiative in overcoming opposition, effectiveness of presentation and results earned.
The team and all the winners will be honored at the award ceremony in Washington, D.C. on June 20. Congratulations, Jeff and team! For more about the award, visit http://www.spj.org/sdxa13.asp.
