E-mail announces national prize for newsletter

It was great to receive this e-mail from the National Federation of Press Women:

Congratulations! You have won First -- 50A in the 2008 NFPW Communications Contest.

We hope you will make plans now to attend the NFPW Conference September 11 - 13, 2008, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, to receive your award in person at the Saturday evening Awards Banquet.

Again, congratulations!

Karen Galanaugh, Contest Director

Wow! The prize is for a 2007 issue of About Growth, a newsletter that I edited for the Washington State Department of Community, Trade and Economic Development. The newsletter won first place in the newsletter category in the Washington state contest, then was sent to the national competition.

It’s the first national-level prize I’ve received, although I’ve won regional and state awards. It’s very exciting.
