The Citizen awarded by Michigan Press Association

October 06, 2010 - The Citizen newspaper staff received four awards in the 2010 Michigan Press Association (MPA) Better Newspaper Contest, including an honorable mention in the general excellence category.

In general excellence, newspapers are rated on their overall quality, including advertising, editorial, photography, readability, and layout. Four newspapers statewide were recognized for the award in the weekly Class B division in which The Citizen competes among newspapers with circulations of 10,001-25,000.

Newspapers around the state submit thousands of entries yearly in the contest, which was judged this year by the Minnesota Press Association.

Also winning individual awards for The Citizen were Staff Writer Susan Bromley, who received second place in the sports feature category for her article, 'BHS Grad, Runner, Gets Over the Wall'; Editor David Fleet, who won second place in the feature story category for his story, 'Hey Duke, How About a Picture?' with judges commenting, "Nice to see coverage of Korean War Veteran. They always seem to be overlooked"; and Photographer Bob Flath, who took second place for his photo, 'A Little Off the Top.' Judges commented, "Nice contrast with the calm barber and wincing kid."
