Chad Selweski, author of the website and the “Politically Speaking” blog, received an award on Wednesday from the Society of Professional Journalist’s Detroit chapter for a story he wrote in 2017 about drug-using workers who can’t hold a job.

The story was written for Bridge Magazine, an online publication that received 23 awards for writing and editing in the SPJ’s Excellence in Journalism contest, including five first-place finishes.

Bridge, a publication of the nonprofit The Center for Michigan, also swept categories for localization of a national news story and for consumer and watchdog reporting.

Selweski’s story received a 3rd place award in the category of general news reporting by online Michigan publications.
