The awards recognize Los Angeles area journalists and publications as well as excellence in new and emerging media.

Of the five nominations, two go to LA School Report commentator Ellie Herman, a writer/teacher who has spent the last year following a group of teachers in classrooms throughout Los Angeles.

Herman is a finalist for “non-political commentary” for her post,  “Pump Down The Volume On Rhetoric.” She also got cited in the category of “individual blog” for her entry, “Why Teachers Teach?–Need You Ask.”

The staff of LA School Report is nominated in two categories — as a finalist for overall excellence in “reporting by an internet website news organization,” and for “best use of social media to enhance a story” with the entry, Story of Deasy Media Frenzy in 15 Tweets.

In addition, Jame Alter Lynton, the founder of LA School Report, is nominated in the columnist category for a piece entitled, “Do you or Don’t You Support John Deasy?”
