Two Wisconsin Labor Publications Claim Journalism Awards at National Conference

The American Postal Workers Union National Postal Press Association held its National Conference recently in sunny Las Vegas, NV. Editors from throughout the U.S. attend the Conference in order to sharpen their editing skills and get recharged for the next two years before the next Conference. Editors got tuned into writing, layouts, labor history, photos, and what’s legal and what’s not among other things.

The Awards Banquet is the finale of the Conference where those Editors that submitted their publication to the scrutiny of the judges for a number of Journalism Awards sit with their fingers crossed with hopes of hearing their publication title called out.

Thanks to Jennifer Schweitzer, John Miceli, and their Local contributors, Milwaukee claimed an unheard off seven Awards. Jennifer is the Editor of the HI-LITES and John is the Assistant Editor. The awards are as follows:

John Miceli: First Place - Best News Story
Jennifer Schweitzer: First Place - Best Community Service
Carl Pietrzak: (member) Hon. Mention - Best Creative Writing
Greg Preuss: (steward) Hon. Mention - Best Headline
Chris Czubakowski: (officer/steward) Hon. Mention - Best Non-Postal Labor Story
Hi-Lites: Hon. Mention - Best Non-Professional (A) Single Issue
Hi-Lites: Hon. Mention - Best Overall Excellence Non-Professional (A)

The BADGER BULLETIN was fortunate to secure one award for: First Place – Best Professional (Single Issue) which is very much appreciated. Credit must go to our contributors who determine the content and our publisher – Stacy Publishing. (Thanks Tom and Laury!)
