Regina Zilbermints, a former Daily Iowan reporter and Metro editor, recently received a Hearst Journalism Award.

According to a Dec. 2 press release from the Hearst Foundation, Zilbermints placed fifth in the feature-writing category for her story "Out on the fly: Iowa authorities struggle with warrants."

"I feel wonderful," she said. "I'm really, really excited that my hard work on this story paid off." The story was about warrant enforcement in the state of Iowa. Zilbermints, who now works for the Des Moines Register, traveled to Pennsylvania in order to gather information for her piece.

Zilbermints received a $1,000 scholarship along with her fifth-place award.
