LA Press Club Award LAUSDUpstart LA School Report took first place for Best Blog at the 56th annual SoCal LA Press Club awards ceremony yesterday.

The winning entry, Why Teachers Teach, Need You Ask? was written by contributor and teacher Ellie Herman,  who spent the past year chronicling the challenges facing teachers in the classroom.

Herman also took third place in the category of online Non-Political Commentary for her story entitled, Pump down the volume on rhetoric.

The staff of LA School Report took third place for best overall Website News Organization and had nominations for best online Political Commentary and best use of Social Media.
