ANOTHER HCN WINHCN Contributing Editor Michelle Nijhuis has garnered another award for her "Hot Times" series on climate change in the West, this time from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Michelle won the association’s prestigious Science Journalism Award, "the pinnacle of achievement for professional journalists in the science writing field," in the Small Newspapers category (under 100,000 circulation). Peter Spotts of the Christian Science Monitor, a judge, described her stories as "a nice blend of current research and historical context."
Congratulations, Michelle — and thanks to the Engel Fund of the San Diego Foundation and to our Research Fund donors, who supported her work.
The "Hot Times" series also recently received first runner-up in the National Academies’ Communication Awards, the Newspaper/ Magazine/Internet category (first place went to The New Yorker’s Elizabeth Kolbert for her global climate change series).
