At least one major journalism organization has tabbed the Globe's coverage as an entry that may be cited when the awards are announced at 2 p.m. at Columbia University.

Work honored by other award programs includes the Arizona Republic’s coverage of the shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, and the Joplin Globe’s coverage of a devastating tornado in its southwestern corner of Missouri.
