The hard work, dedication, and skills of the Wilson County News team have paid off, making 2012 an award-winning year for the newspaper and the talented individuals who bring this publication to readers each week.

Two awards, in particular, bring us great pride and joy.

The Wilson County News’ Newspapers In Education (NIE) program captured first-place honors in its category in the National Newspaper Association’s Newspaper and Education contest, for traditional newspaper in education stories and curriculum.

The judge commented, “Creating Wilson [the NIE mascot] was a brilliant move for the Wilson County News. Now there’s a mascot to lead the effort. He’s friendly and identifiable and once in place, not expensive to keep. This is a traditional campaign, linking young readers to the newspaper via activities and stories, and it’s well done. I enjoyed the Young Journalists column -- a nice touch.”

Also garnering national first-place honors was Sports Editor Robert C. McDonald, for his feature, “Take a Kid Fishing; You’ll Both Love It.” The article, from summer 2011, captured top honors in the Best Sports Writing category in the Local Media Association Editorial Contest.

Among the other honors are:

•Local Media Association: third place, Best Feature Series, “A Year of Giving,” features on local charitable organizations throughout 2011.

•National Newspaper Association: third place, Best Series Ad Idea-Black & White, for Vinyard Funeral Homes, designer: Cathy Green; and third place, Best Sports Section/Page, designer: Taryn Smith-Morales.

•Texas Press Association: fourth place, page design. Judges commented, “Interesting use of photos on front.”

Each week, the Wilson County News team, from our front-office staff to our distribution team, and from our advertising sales and design team to the newsroom and administration, work hard to bring readers the very best in stories, ads, photos, and more in the pages of the Wilson County News and online.

And, of course, we could not do what we do without our wonderful communities and readers. Thank you for supporting your local award-winning newspaper!
