Participant in ICFJ online course wins state Spanish-language prize in Florida.

After participating in an online course on immigration coverage, Enrique Flor, a staff writer for El Sentinel, received second place in a state-wide competition for his series on immigration.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) ran the course. If focused on legal, social, economic and political angles in covering immigration. Participants joined in vigorous debates on ethics, use of loaded words, and other hot topics.

This was not Flor's first ICFJ course. In 2008, he received awards for his coverage of Florida's Tropical Storm Fey after participating in an ICFJ workshop on disaster coverage. In 2009, he won second place in the McGraw-Hill Personal Finance Journalism Awards, after an ICFJ course on the topic.
