2017 Press Club of Long Island Media Award winning cartoons!
… and it’s us? NY’s 1st CD representative seems to be reluctant to hold in-person town hall meetings. Just today, he’s agreed to a town hall tele-conference. No doubt he’ll be sequestered away in a dry safe place away from all the scary liberal snowflakes.
Here’s an idea from my sketchbook that didn’t see print.
I did well at the 2015 Press Club of Long Island Media Awards. Common Core mockery was popular with newspaper judges this season.
My winning entries:
First place, from Newsday
The judges said, “A clever take on the local – and national – drama surrounding Common Core educational standards. It is well-drawn, with nice use of color.”
Second place, from the Syosset/Jericho Tribune
Third Place, from Newsday
This past weekend was the NY Press Association’s “Better Newspaper Contest”.
I scored my first statewide first place award. The judges had this to say:
“Great job in bringing a universal truth to a local issue.”
Here’s the winning cartoon and your daily dose of universal truth. I knew the common core was good for something.
