Judges awarded a silver medal to USA Today for its entry “Ghost Factories: Smelting and Lead Contamination” in the use of multimedia category.

Here’s what the judges had to say:

“If you keep drilling down into the story, it’s impossible to find the limits to the depth of the reporting.”

“The presentation is so smart; it begs you to engage with it.”
