Associated Press Media Editors Journalism Excellence Award

2014 - Public service
Honorable mention for "Missteps and Secrets," a six-month investigation into the mistakes at a nuclear weapon laboratory that caused a radiation leak at a waste dump and essentially shut down clean-up efforts nationally for years. It revealed jaw-dropping secrets about the volatility of the waste, which the lab had downplayed and generally hidden from the public and even nuclear workers encountered the waste.
