It’s an especially exciting time to work at California Watch and the Center for Investigative Reporting. In recent weeks, we’ve been honored with the MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions, the Scripps Howard Award for public service and the George Polk Award. Merger talks continue with The Bay Citizen. And soon, we will unveil a new section of the website dedicated to kid-friendly material.
Wee ones will be able to color our “Ready to Rumble” book on earthquake safety right on the site; parents can order or download a copy for home use. Plus, we’ll launch an occasional series of videos featuring Sunny, the California Watchdog, as he helps children understand the issues we report on, like lead in jewelry and the need for clean drinking water.
There’s just one thing we’re missing: a name for the kids’ section. We’ve narrowed down our list to three favorites and need your help to decide what we’ll call it. Voting will remain open through Friday. Thank you!
