Memorial Partner Nets Top Journalism Award

StoryCorps is a 9/11 Memorial partner

StoryCorps, a national oral history initiative and 9/11 Memorial partner, has won one of 14 Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University awards for excellence in broadcast and digital journalism.

StoryCorps worked with National Public Radio, PBS’ Point of View documentary films, and the 9/11 Memorial to create a multiplatform history of September 11 for the tenth anniversary, turning personal accounts into animated shorts and an hour-long NPR special, according to the Columbia Journalism Review.

The 9/11 Memorial worked with StoryCorps to create the September 11th Initiative to collect and record remembrance interviews for each of the nearly 3,000 victims of the September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 attacks.
