Newspaper wins awards at Nebraska press convention
The Catholic Voice won two awards at the recent Nebraska Press Association Convention in Kearney.
The newspaper captured first place in Advertising Campaign and second place in the Feature Story category.
Advertising Manager Randy Grosse and Graphic Designer Shannon Tarvin were recognized for their ad campaign promoting a pilgrimage to Rome.
"I bet this ad (campaign) got a high response," the judge wrote. "Everything looked so big and real that the price did not even look shocking."
In the Feature Story competition, Grosse was awarded second for his story on a victim of clergy abuse headlined "Program Allows Victims of Abuse to Share Secret."
"Tough story to tackle, but it provides needed information, and the report can help others," the judge commented.
Members of the Kentucky Press Association judged more than 2,200 entries for the contest that covered stories, pictures and ads published in 2004.
