Virg Hill Journalist Of The Year, First Runner-Up
Arizona Press Club
April 2016
“Trevizo’s contest portfolio demonstrated tremendous initiative, a real knack for enterprise reporting and a deft hand at telling those stories in a clear, compelling way,” judge Glenn Smith wrote. “She has a talent for finding human tales that put a face to larger issues and provide a needed voice to some of society’s most vulnerable.  Her series on the family of young kids struggling to keep their lives together in the absence of their mother was captivating, as was the tale of the workers who continue to show up at the closed factory in Nogales. I also was drawn in by the project on the pickers who live at the landfill. These are gritty pieces that are tough to get in places most people never venture. And they are loaded with great color and context. Well done.”
