Powering a Nation listed among the 18 Most Innovative Alternative News Stories of 2010

From the article:

“News 21’s Powering a Nation is a student-produced project by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Several different schools participate in News 21’s projects, but this year Powering a Nation clearly stood out because of its unique multimedia reporting on the oil spill. The project features multimedia interviews and stories, as well as interactive games and blog posts written about the project.”

I’m extremely proud that I’m able to say I was a part of this project that has garnered recognition not just as a student project, but also ranked among CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Wikileaks, Pictory, The LA Times, ProPublica, Mint, Life.com and other well-established, professional news companies.

We worked so hard on our stories for Powering a Nation and I cannot believe that it has received this attention.
