A few months ago, I won three first place awards in the Missouri Communications Contest through my local National Federation of Press Women (NFPW) chapter. These three entries were then entered in the NFPW’s national contest. I recently heard that I won First, Second and Honorable Mention in the national contest!
- First place in Magazine Section Editing – for my work in 2008 on the National Association of Electrical Distributor’s NAED Direct section in TED Magazine.
- Second place in Writing for the Web (Web content written for corporate or for-profit organization sites) – for the text I wrote for the Cutter’s Kitchens and Baths website.
- Honorable Mention in Special articles, Business – for articles I wrote for IMARK Marketfocus Magazine (see Results for the articles). I’d write down which ones it was here if I had finished putting away all my files after we moved offices!
The awards will be given away at NFPW’s national conference in September. Now I have to decide if I’m up for a trip or not!
