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
