'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The nonprofit Mt. Lebanon Partnership has started an initiative to promote art and announced grants to two adult and two youth winners.

• Sandra Ward, who will make mixed-media works to reflect ancestors' stories, $1,000 award.

• Chris Rohrbach, who crafted a “happy crab” diagram that he uses to tell stories, $984.

• Nora Vaughn, 10th grade, who will design a mixed-media painting based on observations from a church trip to Malawi, Africa, $280.

• Kathryn Mellett, 11th grade, who will film the Artists Market in October in Mt. Lebanon, $750. The 2014 Plein Air event is set for Oct. 5 to 12.
