Pulitzer Center grantees Luisa Conlon, Lacy Jane Roberts, and Hanna Miller were selected as finalists in the Excellence in International Reporting category for their Pulitzer Center-supported short film, "We Became Fragments."
"We Became Fragments" follows Syrian teenager Ibraheem Sarhan as he struggles to build a new life in Winnipeg, Canada. Sarhan was forced to flee Syria with his father after a bombing killed his mother and four siblings. The film documents his first week of high school in Winnipeg.
Past Pulitzer Center grantees nominated for 2019 Livingston Awards include Jonathan Blitzer, Zoë Carpenter, Jane Ferguson, and Emily Gogolak.
