American Mosaic Journalism Prize Awarded to Rebecca Nagle and Darcy Courteau

Two years ago, we announced the creation of The American Mosaic Journalism Prize. This unrestricted cash prize of $100,000 per recipient is awarded to freelance journalists for excellence in long-form, narrative, or deep reporting about underrepresented and/or misrepresented groups in the American landscape. We created the prize as part of our work that supports journalism as an essential arm of U.S. democracy—recognizing journalism’s critical ability to expose audiences to new perspectives and foster greater understanding. Today, we are pleased to announce the newest recipients of this prize: Rebecca Nagle and Darcy Courteau.
