Emily Alpert, voiceofsandiego.org‘s education reporter, swept the education category this week at the San Diego Society of Professional Journalists local awards ceremony.

Alpert won first, second and honorable mention in the category for daily reporting and writing, with this story on American Indian education nabbing first. Rob Davis grabbed a first place in non-deadline reporting for this piece and this piece on what’s killing the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, a primary source of San Diego’s drinking water, and Will Carless got another first place in online breaking news for this story on the first night of the massive October 2007 wildfires.

voiceofsandiego.org staff also picked up three second place awards and two honorable mentions. Go to the local SPJ website for a complete list of the winners.
