The South Florida Sun Sentinel won several honors on Wednesday at the prestigious Green Eyeshade Awards, the nation’s oldest regional journalism contest.
Gauert also got a second place prize in the magazine division for humorous commentary. He’s the editor-in-chief and founding editor of City & Shore and PRIME magazines.
The Sun Sentinel’s editorial board also won first place plaudits for a collection of editorials on holding government accountable, including critiques of the Florida Supreme Court’s death penalty ruling, Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Broward Sheriff’s Office. The team consisted of writers Martin Dyckman and Steve Bousquet, and former editorial page editor Rosemary O’Hara.
The Green Eyeshades recognize print, television, radio and online journalism in the Southeastern United States. This chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists has been presenting the awards since 1950.
