Jake Brownell earned a Colorado Broadcasters Association Award of Excellence this past weekend for his news feature Guns to Garden Tools: Beating Swords Into Plowshares.

The piece ran shortly after the October 1, 2017 Las Vegas, Nevada shooting which left 58 people dead and 851 injured. Beating Swords Into Plowshares covers the story of one Colorado Springs man's efforts to offer people a symbolic way to dispose of their firearms by taking unwanted guns and turning them into gardening tools.
