The Weekly was one of 85 winners at newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations and online news sites across the country from nearly 1,800 entries, according to the Society's announcement of the awards.
The Sigma Delta Chi Awards date back to 1932 and each year recognize exceptional professional journalism as judged by a panel of prominent veteran journalists. The Weekly's award is in the non-daily newspaper category.
The Weekly coverage included two cover stories researched and written by Lobdell, "Out of the Shadows," (June 14, 2013) about bullying, and "Power to Hurt," (Aug. 16, 2013) on the use of social media by teens, and numerous news stories by Kenrick and Lobdell on the school district's handling of bullying complaints, federal investigations and the development of bullying policies.
The award also recognizes the Weekly's pursuit and use of public records as part of its reporting process.
