IRE Award

While many college students fall into an academic grind of attending classes, doing homework and taking exams, two Columbia College journalism students were able to take their education to a whole new level. Allison Riggio, 23, Hunter Clauss, 25, have proved there’s no limit for student journalists.
Riggio and Clauss have received a highly coveted Investigative Reporters and Editors national award for their investigative reporting last year of nepotism practiced by six Chicago aldermen. There are 15 categories in the IRE contest, and the organization reported receiving 530 entries.
