In May 2018, The Medill Justice Project won two Peter Lisagor Awards for Exemplary Journalism for our multimedia investigation of the Ahmad Adisa case and for MJP-TV, a weekly interview-style television program that discusses local, national and international criminal justice issues. The Chicago Headline Club, one of the largest chapters of the national Society of Professional Journalists, presented the awards to the best professional journalists in Illinois and parts of Indiana. In the past seven years, MJP has won 14 Lisagor awards and been named a finalist for 31 for our investigative, feature and deadline reporting. In total, since 2011, MJP has won or been named a finalist for more than 75 journalism awards in national and local competitions open to both students and professionals.
