ProPublica is proud to announce that Olga Pierce, Jeff Larson and Lois Beckett are recipients of the 2011 Livingston Award for Young Journalists. The reporting trio won in the National Reporting category for their series on redistricting and how powerful interests are influencing elections.
The Livingstons are the nation's largest all-media, general reporting prize which recognizes promising journalists under the age of 35. Several ProPublicans have been finalists for the Livingstons in the past, including reporters Joaquin Sapien, Michael Grabell, Sabrina Shankman and Ryan Knutson, but this year is the first time ProPublica has won. ProPublica's editor-in-chief, Paul Steiger, has also been honored by the Livingstons in the past with the Richard M. Clurman award for mentoring young journalists in 2009.
