Wooten awarded third place national distinction

The National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association announced the recipients of its Excellence in Journalism Awards Oct. 3.

Bradley Wooten, then of the UWM Post, received third place for the NLGJA's Excellence in Student Journalism Award for his article "Resist urge, gays told: Jesus as 'motivating factor.'"

Tim Wilkins, the subject of the article, is a Baptist who seeks to evangelize and disciple the homosexual, a task, he said, can be accomplished, as he did, through Jesus.

After the article's publication, Wilkins slammed Wooten on his Web site,, with the article "Journalism at its worst."
