Judges’ Comments

“This is a topic ideally suited for narrative and the reporter delivers. …The article about the suddenly wealthy Morongo tribe and how that has turned around education effort underscores the effect of resources on an education. The series is commendable for explaining the devastating effect of sequestration on tribal education.The layout of the photos for the series is striking, using broad edge to edge layout to take advantage of the vistas of tribal lands. Also enhancing the series were videos that visually reinforced the themes and characters. The timeline is well done and art along with text are laid out effectively on the series landing page.”
