Julie Jargon has won second place in the John Bartlow Martin Award for Public Interest Magazine Journalism for her series, "The War Within," published by Westword. The series, which also won an Investigative Reporters and Editors Certificate this year, investigated patterns of sexual assault and institutional cover-up at the United States Air Force Academy near Colorado Springs. The Martin Award, now in its 16th year, is based out of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism where namesake John Bartlow Martin concluded his career in investigative journalism.
