There were at least a half dozen stories or essays that were worthy of placing. But, the first place was an easy choice. A Different Path gave us a close look at this athlete's mission. Tembe Daily Life showed us the indigenous people as their lives are impacted as their Amazon rainforest faces deforestation. Lethal Force was a worthy essay following the families, community and police force affected by the death of Jermaine Massey.
