Sierra Sun receives two awards in state contest

The Sierra Sun was honored with two first-place awards in the California Newspaper Publisher Association’s annual Better Newspaper Contest.

The Sun received first-place awards in the Display and Classified Advertising categories.

Award-winners were recognized Saturday at the CNPA convention in Monterey. The Sun competed against weeklies with 4,300 to 11,000 circulation. The Sun’s circulation is about 6,000.

Entries were first judged by California publishers, editors and reporters. These California judges narrowed each category down to four nominations. Then, a panel of eight blue ribbon judges from newspapers around the United States picked the first- and second-place winners.

The Sun’s sister newspapers received awards in the CNPA contest. The Tahoe World in Tahoe City received first places in the General Excellence, Best Editorial and Spot News categories and second in Environmental Reporting.

The Tahoe Daily Tribune’s Action Magazine took first place in the Arts and Entertainment Coverage category for dailies with circulations of 10,000 and under. The Tribune also received second place in the Sports Photography category.
