First Place Honors
“Celebrating 150 Years,” the book published in conjunction with Emmetsburg’s and Palo Alto County’s Sesquicentennial this summer, has earned first place honors. The announcement was made last weekend in Des Moines along with other winners of the Iowa Newspaper Association Better Newspaper Contests.
“We were thrilled to receive a first place award for our book,” said Jane Whitmore, editor. “It was due to a lot of help from our residents that we were able to compile this historic look at 150 years of our county and community. So many of you let us use your pictures. We thank you again. The book was a great project, one that we hope people will keep for many years.”
“Celebrating 150 Years” was judged in the category Best Special Section – Editorial, in the Weekly, Class 3 Division of 2,275 and above circulation.
