Tribune takes home yet another state award

The Tahoe Daily Tribune won first place for general excellence and 12 other awards Saturday night at the Nevada Press Association award ceremony in Carson City.

Judges said the Tribune earned first place for excellence because of “good clean layout, nice coverage of local news, and strong use of photos.”

In the general excellence category, the Tribune competed against dailies with a circulation of 15,000 and under. The Lahonton Valley News took second place and Humboldt Sun was awarded third.

On Aug. 11, the Tribune won general excellence and seven other awards from the California Newspaper Publishers Association.

“I think it’s fantastic we won the top award in two different states,” said Tahoe Daily Tribune Publisher W. Les Hill. “Few newspapers are geographically located where they belong to two different press associations. It certainly speaks of the quality of the newspaper to win in both states.”

Managing Editor Christina Proctor also attended Saturday’s award ceremony.

“Awards are a nice part of the job,” she said, “but the essential thing is that we strive to make ourselves vital and informative to the community. It’s something we have to strive for every day.”
