Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism wins top website award

As announced today at WisconsinWatch.org, the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism — a nonprofit and nonpartisan local reporting group housed right here in Vilas Hall in collaboration with Wisconsin Public Television, Wisconsin Public Radio, and our School of Journalism & Mass Communication — has won a series of awards from the Milwaukee Press Club:

WisconsinWatch.org was named the best local news or feature website at the Milwaukee Press Club’s annual awards celebration on Friday night.

The Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, which produces the website, was honored with three gold (first place) awards and a silver in the club’s Awards for Excellence in Wisconsin Journalism, the state’s premiere all-media journalism competition.

The Center now has received nine awards — six of them for first place — in the contest over the past two years.

We’re especially proud that so many School of Journalism & Mass Communication students, volunteers, and interns participated in the reporting that led to these awards!  Congratulations!
