Iowa Associated Press Media Editors Award

2017 - Continuing News Coverage
I placed second for continuing news coverage in the Iowa Associated Press Media Editors' annual awards for articles I wrote over a 10-month span about a small, struggling Iowa town. These stories followed Mount Union and the people who live there through disputes related to the city's state-mandated new sewer system and an eventual decision to unincorporate.

Iowa Newspaper Association Award

2017 - Front Page Design

The Hawk Eye was the only finalist to have editors lay out pages, as the other two winners outsource their design to centralized hubs.
