Canton Repository, October 31, 2006
COLUMBUS Copley Columbus Bureau Chief Paul E. Kostyu has won a third place in the Society of Environmental Journalists Awards.

The award, in the small-market print category, was for his series "Who's Protecting Us?" which examined the operation of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. The occasional series ran from October 2005 through December.

Founded in 1990, the Society of Environmental Journalists has about 1,300 members. The organization's mission is to advance public understanding of environmental issues by improving the quality, accuracy and visibility of environmental news reporting.

First place in the small-market category went to the Bangor (Maine) Daily News and second place went to El Diario, a newspaper in Mexico.

The awards were announced during the society's annual conference in Burlington, Vt.
