Awards

 
 
 
 
Movies have the Oscars. Music has the Grammys. In journalism, there is no higher honor than the Pulitzer Prize. Starting in 1964, writers at the Tampa Bay Times have won 13 Pulitzer Prizes. We exposed local schools where students were consigned to failure. We revealed abuses by the Church of Scientology. We got fluoride put back in the public water supply.

We did that workwhich was difficult, expensive and sometimes riskynot for the recognition from our journalism peers. To win a Pulitzer Prize, the work must be excellent. But there is plenty of excellent work that never wins the prize. Our archives are rich with stories that are every bit as good as those that won the Pulitzer Prize.

We come to work to help our readers know their communities, and to make the Tampa Bay region a better place. We want our kids to learn in good schools, our neighbors to live in decent housing, our taxes to be spent wisely, our environment to be healthy. When our work earns the admiration of our peers around the country, we are proud. But what counts most is the difference we can make here at home.
