BLOOMINGTON— The Timberjay was the winner of five statewide awards during the Minnesota Newspaper Association’s annual Better Newspaper Contest. MNA officials announced the results at last weekend’s annual MNA convention, held in Bloomington.
The Timberjay took first place for best website, as well as second-place awards for Editorial Page as a Whole, General Reporting, Social Issues Feature Story, and Typography and Design.
The newspaper has won in all of these categories, and many others, on numerous occasions over the years.
“As always, we’re pleased for the recognition from those in the industry,” said Timberjay Publisher Marshall Helmberger. “But the thanks we hear everyday from readers who appreciate the kind of journalism we provide is the highest reward for us.”
