Michigan State University environmental journalism students gain national recognition

Three student publications or projects of Michigan State University’s Knight Center for Environmental Journalism (http://ej.msu.edu) are finalists in a nationwide contest recognizing student journalism.
These efforts were noted by the 2008 Society of Professional Journalists' Mark of Excellence Award contest. They represent diverse methods of news delivery:
  • Online In-Depth Reporting for "Pine River Superfund Site" (Reported on the Great Lakes Wiki by Andy Balaskovitz, John Allison, Ian Walker)
  • TV In-Depth Reporting for Dying to be Heard, a documentary broadcast on public television stations throughout Michigan.(Ben Phillips, Karly Pence, Kevin Wilt.)

The Knight Center for Environmental Journalism features programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels and does extensive professional outreach to reporters covering the environment in the U.S. and abroad
