Washington Jewish Week took home four awards at the Maryland/Delaware/D.C. Press Association’s Editorial Awards luncheon held May 1 at the BWI Westin in Linthicum.

The staff won first place and best of show (competing against the Washington Post and the Baltimore Sun, among others) in the religion reporting category for a multi-part series, “State of the Movements,” on the status of Judaism’s major denominations.


Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey W. Melada and Senior Writer Suzanne Pollak shared first place honors in the medical/science reporting category for their article, “The pain changes your life,” about area parents seeking answers after a rash of teen suicides.

Former Baltimore Jewish Times staff writer Heather Norris won first place for state government reporting and the staff of WJW‘s sister publication garnered first place and best of show for headline writing.
