The Better Government Association presents the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Awards for Investigative Reporting: Follow the Money, featuring special guest David Barstow.
The awards highlight the impact of Illinois investigative and enterprise reporting as a reform tool within the context of state and local government waste, fraud, and corruption. This year, we’re honored to recognize news organizations with the Small Newsroom Category in addition to the main category and Readers’ Choice award.
