2015 Opinion Writing Finalist: Liz Willen
Liz Willen | The Hechinger Report
Combining traditional reporting with a strong voice, Liz Willen turns to the evidence to make her case on a wide range of issues, from the words reporters use to the high school and beyond.
Comments from the Judges:
“I like the variety of the topics, particularly the ones about jargon and community college students. These were well written and showed some strong reporting and leg work in the context of editorial and column writing. These pieces show a nice sense of skepticism but also sympathy that attracted me as a reader. They also felt original, not a rehash.”
