1217 – Covering Addiction

For an entire semester, I helped direct a classroom of student journalists to produce solutions-oriented longform reporting focused on addiction in Philadelphia.

I served as the Managing and Solutions Editor for the class’s final project, 1217. The project won two EPPY awards for photojournalism and website design and was a finalist in four other categories.

The project also won two First-place Keystone awards for ongoing news coverage and public service/enterprise package. Individual articles throughout the project also won various awards.
