City Pages took home first place in the "Multimedia" category at the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies' annual Alt-Weekly Awards, which were announced yesterday.

The multimedia award went to Emily Kaiser and Nick Vlcek for their March 2010 story, slideshow and video package for "Hip Hop High." The package profiled the High School for Recording Arts in St. Paul and some of its most promising students.

Staff writer Jessica Lussenhop also won second place for short form news story. Lussenhop's diverse three entries in that category looked into bed bugs invading the Twin Cities, a politically-minded monster truck driver and a prisoner who didn't like being called a "cop killer."

City Pages also got a third place finish for cover design, with Mike Kooiman and Nick Vlcek rewarded for their work on cover art for three issues. 

Kaiser's article on the High School for the Recording Arts told of school founder David Ellis giving creative kids a chance to thrive in a different school environment.

No special mention to MPLS.TV for developing, shooting, editing, and pretty much everything else for this video
