Islander reporter recognized at press club awards

The Florida Press Club honored newspaper journalists from around the state Nov. 2 at its annual gala at the Waterstone Resort & Marina in Boca Raton.

Islander reporter ChrisAnn Silver Esformes garnered third place in the environmental writing category in Class C — competing with large daily newspapers across the state, including the top winner, Palm Beach Post — with her article, “‘Bortie’ nests on Anna Maria Island, aids in sea turtle research,” about a sea turtle that was satellite tagged on Anna Maria Island in 2018 and competed in an annual “race” to track migration.

For nearly 70 years, the Florida Press Club, originally called the Florida Women’s Press Club, has recognized the best in Florida journalism.
