On March 19, 2013 I received two awards during the 21st Annual Scholastic Press Association of Chicago Workshop at Roosevelt University. The first was Excellent Honors for a Non-Sports Photo. The winning photograph can be seen below. I was also the first-place winner of the News Write-off competition which took place that same day. Competitors were given information about an event at Roosevelt University and had to write a 200 word article about it in 50 minutes.
