Alberta Weekly Newspaper Association annual awards go in Red Deer

The Ponoka News and Bashaw Star are up for some exciting awards at the annual Alberta Weekly Newspaper Association’s (AWNA’s) awards banquet tonight, May 31, in Red Deer.

The Bashaw Star is up for a general excellence award against our Black Press sister paper the Rimbey Review for “Best Sports Page” as well as a sports writing award for an article written by our own Jordie Dwyer.

The Ponoka News is in the top three for “Best Editorial Page” and an award of excellence for “Best Special Section” for the News’ 2018 Ponoka Stampede supplement.

The News has also been nominated for a photography award for a spot news photo “Winter Rescue” taken by Jeffrey Heyden-Kaye, up against Todd Colin Vaughan from the Lacombe Express (also a Black Press paper) for his sports action shot “Central AB Buccaneers came up short.”
