Sandy Coronilla, a San Diego State University graduate and a former Voice of San Diego intern, received a national journalism award over the weekend for some of her reporting here.
The award recognizes students who produce journalism in service to the First Amendment. The Society of Professional Journalists selected Coronilla for her reporting on San Diego’s business improvement districts earlier this year.
After months of investigation, Coronilla found many nonprofit organizations that run the districts were out of compliance with state public records and open meeting laws. Her story prompted city officials in June to enact rules promoting greater transparency.
If you are interested in sponsoring an internship at Voice of San Diego or applying for an internship, please contact our CEO, Scott Lewis. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
