    Contestant Name: The Salinas Californian
    Entry Title: Tackling freedom
    Entry Credit: Joe Szydlowski, Chelcey Adami
    Judge Comment: Good read about a part of life that very few people experience. Very few consider what it is like to re-enter society from prison. Interesting.
  • Place Name: Fifth Place
    Contestant Name: The Salinas Californian
    Entry Title: Going home
    Entry Credit: Eduardo Cuevas, Kate Cimini Cimini, Chelcey Adami
    Judge Comment: Another part of life today that generally goes uncovered - or told from only one perspective. Immigration is such an important topic today and this is a unique way to approach the subject. Good effort, but a very strong field of entries.
