Ridin’ With A Touch of Class

Brian Cook

Chris Hayes beat me to the punch, but The ITT List is now rolling deep with an official prize winner. Adam Doster bested more than 400 other writers-- some good ones too--to win the College Affordability Essay Contest. Adam's winning piece, "After College Ends, So Does Activism," can be read here. And, as coincidence would have it, Adam's piece on another relatively new and unsavory aspect of campus life is gracing our site's main page today. I believe it is also what the kids call a "must-read." Anyway, congratulations Adam. The honor is well deserved.

Help In These Times Celebrate & Have Your Gift Matched!

In These Times is proud to share that we were recently awarded the 16th Annual Izzy Award from the Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College. The Izzy Award goes to an independent outlet, journalist or producer for contributions to culture, politics or journalism created outside traditional corporate structures.

Fellow 2024 Izzy awardees include Trina Reynolds-Tyler and Sarah Conway for their joint investigative series “Missing In Chicago," and journalists Mohammed El-Kurd and Lynzy Billing. The Izzy judges also gave special recognition to Democracy Now! for coverage that documented the destruction wreaked in Gaza and raised Palestinian voices to public awareness.

In These Times is proud to stand alongside our fellow awardees in accepting the 2024 Izzy Award. To help us continue producing award-winning journalism a generous donor has pledged to match any donation, dollar-for-dollar, up to $20,000.
