described the electrical properties of the human brain and how scientists are finding new ways to use those properties to treat diseases and injuries. The judges were impressed by his clear, concise language and great use of sound in telling about important research in neuroscience. While a drill whines in the background, cutting a hole in the top of a patients skull, Keith Seinfeld carries his listeners into the story, said Jeff Nesmith, a Washington-based science writer for Cox Newspapers. This kind of radio journalism seizes a listeners attention while it delivers an understandable account of complicated science. David Baron, global development editor for Public Radio Internationals The World program, praised the vividness of the writing, the clarity of the scientific explanations, the superb use of sound, the dramatic storytelling. He said Seinfelds work hangs together beautifully as a series, with each story building upon those that came before. Well conceived and brilliantly executed, The Electric Brain is radio science journalism of the highest order.

In a solid example of localized science reporting for a community-based Web site, freelance writer Alvord described the potential local impacts of global warming on a local Michigan community. Kathy Sawyer, a freelance science writer formerly with The Washington Post, said Alvords well-crafted and enterprising online package zooms in to capture the effects of global climate change on Michigans Keweenaw Peninsula. The writing, supplemented by telling photos, provides specific, graphic detail for an audience that might not get from any other medium such extensive information about what's happening in their environs, Sawyer said. Bryn Nelson, a freelance science writer, said Alvord delivered a compelling,
