And the Winners are . . .

Winner of the first Christopher J. Georges Award for Service to the Harvard Crimson:

Laura Moore
See her work here.

From Giles: The award is given to students who are dedicated, industrious team players. It is given to students who show dedication to quality journalism and the Crimson. The Georges Family wished to honor someone who had perhaps not seen as much recognition and is particularly giving of their time and expertise to others on the junior staff.

Winner of the Christopher J. Georges Award for Excellence in Journalism:

Tom Kaplan from the Yale Daily News
Winner ($2,000) for Can Yale ever be tuition free?

Rob Silverblatt from the Tufts Daily
Honorable Mention ($1,000) for a six part series on Madoff

From Nieman: The Christopher J. Georges Award for Excellence in Student Journalism honors exceptional, in-depth reporting by a student reporter on a policy issue of importance affecting his/her campus, community, or beyond. Judges look for reports that delve beneath the surface of the story and presenting all sides of its complexities with fairness and accuracy. The award is presented during the annual Georges Collegiate Weekend for college journalists, which is co-hosted by the Nieman Foundation and students from The Harvard Crimson.
