NPR has won several Peabody Awards for an investigation into inequalities in the South Dakota foster care system for Native Americans, coverage of the Arab Spring, and remembrances of 9/11 collected by StoryCorps and broadcast on Morning Edition. The news was announced today.

Receiving Peabody Awards are the NPR News Investigation “Native Foster Care: Lost Children, Shattered Families,” reported by correspondent Laura Sullivan and producer Amy Walters; and NPR’s foreign desk, namely Jerusalem Correspondent Lourdes Garcia-Navarro, for coverage of the Arab Spring in 2011. The oral history project StoryCorps’ response to the 10th anniversary of 9/11 also received an award; interviews with survivors and victims’ relatives were broadcast in a series on NPR’s Morning Edition.
