    Judge Comment: Just amazing. I like how this story goes above just embedding clips from body cameras. I like how the reporter(s) went back to the people impacted that night for interviews, to show a before and after element to the story. I feel like everyone in California and beyond should read this story and take these lessons to heart. Great job!

    Contestant Name: The San Diego Union-Tribune
    Entry Title: Immigration project

    Judge Comment: This story goes beyond the politics to tell true stories of immigrants. I liked not only the use of video intermixed with the words, but how this story was presented on the website, the ability to take it all in or just pieces of it. Great job!
