Eamon Coyne for MPR News

This entry begins with highlights from our reporting on one of the biggest stories of the year: The fatal police shooting of a young black man in north Minneapolis, the weeks-long protests that followed and the shooting of five protesters who were camped out at the police station.

It contains a portion of our groundbreaking investigation into Twin Cities teens lured by the terror group ISIS and our award-winning reporting on the effects of climate change in Minnesota. MPR News covered the debate over the use of police body cameras, racial disparities in arrests and rail safety. And our entry includes creative features on the collapse of the walleye fishery in the state's most popular lake, hospice care for terminally-ill children and the closure of the northern-most lock and dam on the Mississippi River.

Our entry concludes with the Dec. 23, 2015 All Things Considered newscast.
