Multimedia Journalism Award winner: Five Teenagers


This series received “Honorable Mention,” from the AEJMC Best of the Web Awards, 2010: Five Teenagers by Mario Furloni, Kate McLean, Richard Parks and Tasneem Raja, UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.

“These young people are part of Teens On Target or TNT, an after-school program based at East Oakland’s Castlemont High School. TNT trains students to teach violence prevention in the city’s middle schools.”

This work is from the website, Oakland North. Oakland North is a news project of U.C. Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. With support from the Ford Foundation, graduate student reporters at the School  created focused news outlets to concentrate on different parts of the Bay Area. They said: “Our goals are to improve local coverage, experiment with online and digital media, and listen to you–about the stories and features that most interest you, the issues that concern you, the information services you want, and the reporting you’d like to see undertaken in your own community.”
