Daily Herald staff writers Josh Stockinger, Robert Sanchez, Jessica Cilella, Christopher Placek, Marie Wilson and Justin Kmitch were honored in the deadline reporting category for their coverage of the October 2012 stabbing deaths of 7-year-old Justin Plackowski and 5-year-old Olivia Dworakowski in Naperville.

Wilson and staff writers John Leusch, John Radtke, Tara Garcia Mathewson and Patricia Babcock were honored in the education reporting category for "Title IX: Four decades of fighting for equality," a series that examined the wide-ranging effects of Title IX in academics and athletics.

Graphic artist Tim Broderick won the award in the graphics category for "Title IX: Local schools work to bridge achievement gap."

The Daily Herald Editorial Board won in the editorial writing category for "Pensions: Time for Change."

Film critic Dann Gire won in the arts reporting and criticism category for "Dann Gire at the Movies."

Gire also presented a tribute to his friend Roger Ebert, calling him "the exemplary Chicago journalist who embodied the very best in all of us."

"Roger Ebert lived by the philosophy that it's far, far better to regret the things you do in life than regret the things you don't," Gire said. "Chicago's transcendent film critic did everything, and he did everything very well."
