Catholic Voice wins state writing, front page and advertising awards

The Catholic Voice received four awards – including three first place – in the Nebraska Press Association’s Better Newspaper Contest at the group’s April 23 annual convention in Kearney.

Competing with the state’s largest non-daily newspapers, staff with the Archdiocese of Omaha’s official newspaper – including graphic designer John Bosco, news editor Joe Ruff and former staff writers Susan Szalewski and David Gouger – took first in feature series for a multi-issue look at the three pillars of Lent: prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Gouger won single feature story for the newspaper’s look at Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment and environmentally-friendly initiatives by parishes, schools and other ministries in the archdiocese.

Staff members also won best front page for the Nov. 6 edition, which included the headlines, "Happy greetings … quiet prayer" and "Archdiocese study looks to growing future."

The Catholic Voice also picked up a third place award for creative ad writing on three advertisements by editor and general manager Deacon Randy Grosse: "Blood Drive," "Strategic Legacy" and "Pilgrimage."

Members of the Arkansas Press Association judged more than 4,100 separate entries for the contest.
