Awards 2020

In 2020, the Kansas Professional Communicators selected the two columns:

These are "something!" and Buxton

for a First Place award.

Judges' comments included:

Your skill as a writer is so evident in "These are something" as you weave seemingly insignificant items into a tapestry of joy. "Buxton" is a delightful look at history and your family's place in it. Your skills in research are highlighted in this column. Very well done!

A second column published in the Manhattan Mercury newspaper received a Second Place award. Judges' comments included:

An interesting look back at a fun holiday. A great way to expose the community to items in the historical museum's collections.

That article can be seen with the advertising removed at Valentine's Day.

"These are 'something!'" and "Buxton" won First Place awards in the National Federation of Press Women's national contest.
