Star Tribune wins two Pulitzer Prizes

last updated May 29, 2013

Reporters Brad Schrade and Jeremy Olson and editor Glenn Howatt won in the category of Local Reporting for their series on the spike in infant deaths at poorly regulated home daycare facilities. The series resulted in legislative action to strengthen oversight of home daycare businesses.

Long-time Star Tribune editorial cartoonist Steve Sack was also recognized. The Pulitzer Board noted "his diverse collection of cartoons, using an original style and clever ideas to drive home his unmistakable point of view.”

Star Tribune Senior Vice President and Editor Nancy Barnes said, "We are thrilled and humbled. These two Pulitzer Prizes recognize the efforts of four exceptional journalists, but they are also a testament to the work our 260 full-time journalists do every day on behalf of Minnesotans."

The Pulitzers, journalism's highest honor, are given out each year by Columbia University on the recommendation of a board of distinguished journalists. Star Tribune has won four previous Pulitzer Prizes, the most recent in 1990 for investigative reporting.
