The nation's top health official -- Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius -- was the keynote speaker at the award ceremony for the Toner Prize for Excellence in Political Reporting on March 28 in Washington, D.C.

The Toner Prize, honors the life and work of the late Robin Toner, the first woman to be national political correspondent for The New York Times.

The Robin Toner Program in Political Reporting, based at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, is designed to support programs that keep alive the flame of quality, fact-based political journalism that Toner so cherished and at which she excelled -- coverage that illuminates the electoral process, reveals the politics of policy and engages the public in democracy.

Molly Ball of The Atlantic is the winner of the 2012 Toner Prize for Excellence in Political Reporting.

Ball won for her in-depth reporting on the 2012 election, including coverage of the presidential candidates and the campaign around gay-marriage referenda in four states. Her entry of five stories, submitted as examples of her work through the election year, "tells how America changed fundamentally last November," as one judge described Ball's work.
