El Salvador news story wins major award

Tattoo writer Oscar Ramirez, from San Salvador, collected a first-place newswriting award in the Scholastic Press Forum’s annual contest last month for his stellar story last spring about a day care provider on the lam from the police after a baby died in her unregistered shelter.
The Tattoo published a detailed story by Ramirez, in both English and Spanish, that told about life in the shelter — including photographs — and laying out what happened afterward. It was a timely scoop on a big story in Central America.
We’re proud of Oscar and glad his work got some recognition.
