The Public Service award of the 93rd annual Pulitzer Prizes in Journalism went to the Las Vegas Sun, and notably the courageous reporting by Alexandra Berzon, for the exposure of the high death rate among construction workers on the Las Vegas Strip amid lax enforcement of regulations, leading to changes in policy and improved safety conditions, the Pulitzer Prize Board announced here Monday.

Also nominated as finalists in this category were: The New York Times for its comprehensive coverage of the economic meltdown of 2008, setting a standard for depth and sophistication while making the arcane world of finance and banking accessible to an often bewildered public, and St. Petersburg Times for "Politi Fact," its fact-checking initiative during the 2008 presidential campaign that used probing reporters and the power of the World Wide Web to examine more than 750 political claims, separating rhetoric from truth to enlighten voters.

Pulitzer Prize Administrator Sig Gissler announces the Pulitzer Prizes winners at Journalism School of Columbia University in New York, the United States, April 20, 2009. The 93rd annual Pulitzer Prizes in Journalism, Letters, Drama and Music were released here on Monday
