If you don’t know what the acronym SABEW stands for, you probably won’t be interested in this post. Anyway the annual winners of the Best of Business contest by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers are out today, and a number of Washington journos and publications are on the list.
USA Today won an overall excellence award for the fifth year in a row, and won an award for its special project on internet security.
The Post won a breaking news award for its coverage of the Fannie Mae debacle, and the paper’s Neil Irwin, one of the Post’s rising stars, won one of the awards for enterprise reporting with his August 16 article “D.C. Slow To Reduce Its Ranks Of Jobless.”
No word yet on what Irwin will do with the
Corvette plaque that comes with the award.
