Courier reporter Evan Shields won an award from the Indiana Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists in its annual Best of Indiana Journalism contest.
The story won second place for best non-deadline reporting for a newspaper with a circulation of 40,000 or less.
The award was given for the Sept. 10, 2011, story titled "'This stuff is killing our kids': A grieving family warns against the use of bath salts". The story looked at the death of Ryan Moreland, who officials said died as a result of an overdose of bath salts.
The story also gave an in-depth look at the history of synthetic drugs in the area and the problems it's giving law enforcement to keep it off the streets.
