How Sweep it is

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.common_core
