I am pleased and proud to announce that the Pocono Record newsroom has won the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association’s Keystone Press Award Sweepstakes for the third year in a row!
The sweepstakes is awarded by circulation divisions on the strength of the number and placement of winning entries. First-place finishes get assigned a greater number of points than do second-place finishes and so on, and the points are then tallied to determine sweepstakes champs.
Our 2012 showing was impressive!
15: Total Awards
8: First-place finishes
5: Second-place finishes
2: Honorable mentions
What is striking is the range and depth of categories where we won. It proves – again – that we may be small, but we’re mighty!
