NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune has won the Carolyn C. Mattingly Award for Mental Health Reporting for a project exploring the long-term impact of violence on children in a poor neighborhood in New Orleans.
NPF judges said:
“NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune journalists spent a year following a youth football team in a deeply troubled section of New Orleans to report on the devastating impact of exposure to unrelenting violence in their schools, their neighborhoods and their homes. The resulting project, ‘The Children of Central City,’ covers scientific angles and the children’s personal stories, woven together with heart-wrenching narrative elements and visuals.”
Team members include Jonathan Bullington, Richard Webster, Brett Duke, Emma Scott and Haley Correll.
