IPR reporters Morgan Springer and Daniel Wanschura were recognized Saturday at the annual Public Radio News Directors, Inc. (PRNDI) awards banquet in St. Louis.

Springer won first place in the category "Soft Feature" for her story Behind bars, transformation through poetry, which tells the story of prisoners who find solace and community in a poetry writing workshop.

Arts and Culture Reporter Daniel Wanschura won second place in the "Arts Feature" category for Opera: relevant or outdated?, a look at the debate over the current state of opera.

Both stories were featured in The Green Room, IPR's weekly arts and culture program that airs Friday mornings.
