T-Squared: One Week, Four Awards
We've been recognized four times this week for the quality and innovation of our public-service journalism. Woot!
It's been a good week at Trib HQ (and it's not over).
I'm pleased to report that — so far — we've won four significant awards recognizing the quality and innovation of our journalism.
* The Society of Professional Journalists bestowed a Sigma Delta Chi award on the Tribune for Best Digital Media Presentation (Independent). Thanh Tan and the staff of the Trib were recognized for the "31 Days, 31 Ways" series of stories detailing the impact of cuts to the state budget made in the 82nd Legislative Session.
* We were named an official honoree by the 2012 Webby Awards in the politics category, right there alongside national outfits like The Daily Beast, Mother Jones and Reuters Elections.
* And, finally, we won two regional Edward R. Murrow Awards from the Radio Television Digital News Association: for best website and for best video investigative reporting (Justin Dehn and Brandi Grissom's video on dog-sniffing evidence). We won two Murrows two years ago; it's nice to be back in the winner's circle.
We're honored, flattered, etc. We are indebted to the hard work of every member of the Trib staff and to all of you out there — friends, fans, followers — for your continuing support of our still-maturing-but-no-longer-nascent news operation.

Quality journalism doesn't come free
Perhaps it goes without saying — but producing quality journalism isn't cheap. At a time when newsroom resources and revenue across the country are declining, The Texas Tribune remains committed to sustaining our mission: creating a more engaged and informed Texas with every story we cover, every event we convene and every newsletter we send. As a nonprofit newsroom, we rely on members to help keep our stories free and our events open to the public. Do you value our journalism? Show us with your support.Yes, I'll donate today
