VTDigger.org wins New Voice Award – Grant!

MONTPELIER – An independent Vermont news site will get a boost from a $25,000 grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

VtDigger.com, an on-line news site launched last year by a former Times Argus editor, was one of nine independent and community journalism projects to receive funding from the foundation.

The funds – $17,000 in the first year and then an additional $8,000 in the second year if matching funds are found – will allow the website to create what it calls Tipster, an on-line program that will allow readers and reporters to collaborate on news gathering.
