Public Issues 2020


Cottage Life, “Breaking the colour code” by Elamin Abdelmahmoud

A beautifully told narrative about an aspect of cottaging I hadn’t thought about. It made me think about my own privilege and how it may look to others.


Texas Highways, “The Stars at Night” by Rachel Monroe

I really loved everything about this. The writing is so smooth and weaves in a ton of well-researched information.


Mountain Home, “The Basket Babies” by Carrie Hagen

A well told story that sadly, holds extra weight this year. We would be wise to learn from histories such as this.

Award of Merit

Adirondack Life, “Kate Smith Today” by Luke Cyphers

Great research and lots to think about in this thoughtfully written piece.
