“No Time for Play”
The three-part radio series No Time For Play examines how schools in the Seattle area are increasingly limiting kids’ physical activity and play times.
Comments from the Judges:
“KUOW reporter Ann Dornfeld created an important database where none had existed before, demonstrating impressive creativity, doggedness and lots of smart, hard work”
“[T]errific digging and data collection on a really important issue – physical activity and recess among elementary schools. This is watchdog journalism at its best”
