At the 2015 regional Mark of Excellence Awards for the Society of Professional Journalists, the group won the Online In-Depth Reporting Award for their piece "Breaking the class ceiling," and later in the year they were announced as finalists for the national award. The piece was also a gold winner in the 45th Creativity Student Media & Interactive Design Awards.
