Indy writer named a finalist for national award



Since today's a day for passing out awards (happy Best of Missoula, folks), we'd like to tip our hat to Indy staff writer Alex Sakariassen for being named a finalist in the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies annual AltWeekly Awards.

Alex's cover story, "A Call for Help," is among five finalists in the Best Feature Story category for papers with a circulation under 50,000. Other finalists are from The Texas Observer, Jackson Free Press, Nashville Scene, and Monterey County Weekly.

The same story already won first prize in Sports Reporting from the Society of Professional Journalists in its regional awards competition earlier this year.
