BxNN is proud to announce that the Norwood News and the Mount Hope Monitor took home 3 awards at the New York Community Media Alliance's 8th annual Ippies awards dinner Thursday night.

Norwood News managing editor Alex Kratz was recognized with an honorable mention for his article, "Armory Could Bring More Than a Shopping Mall," which explored community benefits agreements in other cities and what the lessons were for NYC development projects like the Armory. Read Alex's story by clicking here.

Mount Hope Monitor editor James Fergusson won first prize in the photo category for his shot of a group of youngsters participating in a "lie-down" to remember the victims of gun violence. View the photo here (first photo shown). James also took third prize in the education category for his article about the lack of gyms in Bronx public schools. Click here to read James' article.
