The Los Angeles Times won the Associated Press Media Editors First Amendment Sweepstakes Award on Thursday for "Grading the Teachers," a groundbreaking analysis of public school test scores that showed good teachers make a measurable difference in the classroom but often go unrecognized and unrewarded.

The Sweepstakes Award is APME's top honor recognizing First Amendment work and was chosen from among three winners announced in July. The others were The Salt Lake Tribune and The Burlington (Vt.) Free Press.

The Times also won awards for public service and online convergence.

APME is an association of editors at AP's 1,400 member newspapers in the U.S. and newspapers served by the Canadian Press in Canada. The First Amendment Sweepstakes Award was presented at the group's annual conference in Denver.
