  • Competition Comment: I was impressed with all of these news stories. The depth of the reporting, under tight deadlines, was impressive. Reporters took the time to get the stories straight, to collect excellent quotes and to write the stories in a compelling and easy to understand way for the benefit of their readers. It was tough to pick winners from such great contenders. Congratulations to all who entered. Keep up the great work.
