    Judge Comment: Stories were deeply reported on subjects that really matter to readers during these trying times. I felt like the writer went beyond the headlines to explain what is happening and why it matters, plus what individuals might be able to do to right wrongs or get hired.
  • Place Name: Second Place
    Contestant Name: The Cincinnati Enquirer
    Entry Title: portfolio of Randy S. Tucker

    Judge Comment: Superb writing and reporting here as the writer lets people tell their own stories, though he is always there to provide context and explanation. Great use of detail also in the Amazon warehouse story. He took a story a lot of newsrooms wrote yet it was the only version that made me feel like I was there.
  • Place Name: Third Place
    Contestant Name: The Columbus Dispatch
    Entry Title: Erica Thompson Best Business Writer

    Judge Comment: Strong watchdog reporting here plus the writer introduced readers to people we don't get to read enough about -- women and people of color behind some very well-known projects.
