SPJ First Place Judges Comments:

"The writer captured not only the entertainment value of the showing of a new documentary, but managed to tell the story behind the film with verve and style. A nice window into the lives of volunteer medical personnel and their supporters on a mission of mercy in Nicaragua."


Arts/Entertainment Story

"Cleanly written and easy for the reader to follow. Simplifies a complex subject so the reader can grasp both the basics and see the deeper issues involved."
