The association that is digging journalists annually publishes a Guldspade for the best investigative reporting in seven different categories.
This year, among others, Ulla Öhman in the local ether media category won by her review of the special school, with the reasoning: "To reveal with a touching journalism how the Kramfors municipality deliberately placed children with normal talent in special schools with consequences devastating to those affected. "
"I'm happy and proud that we have been rewarded with the journalism that touches and makes a difference. This particular examination is based on the fact that we have gained the confidence of the young people who were improperly placed in the special school, she tells P4 Västernorrland.
In the new thinking category, Kristoffer Örstadius won for his work on the "Facts on the Subject" review.
The motivation was: "In a time of myths, polarization and growing political propaganda with innovative methods, the facts about the state in Sweden have been clarified."
"It's a lot of fun, it's a project that I and many others work hard on," he tells Dagens Nyheter.
Twelve years of review of the neglected investigative material on the murder of Olof Palme also gave this dividend when Thomas Pettersson received this year's award in the category magazine "Skandiamannen and Olof Palme."
A total of 160 contests competed, of which 25 were named for the Guldspadegala on Saturday, which was held in conjunction with the Grävseminariet in Kalmar.
