The Mercury wins 4 awards

Congratulations to my colleagues at The Mercury for winning several writing and photography awards in the annual contest sponsored by the Pennsylvania Associated Press Managing Editors.

The Mercury won the following awards in the under-30,000 circulation category for daily newspapers:

First Place: Nancy March, The Mercury, Pottstown, "State budget plan built like a straw house"

First Place: Evan Brandt, The Mercury, Pottstown, "Remember kids, don't be a smartass"

Public Service
Second Place: Evan Brandt and Nancy March, The Mercury, Pottstown, "Keeping local officials on track"


Photo Story
Second Place: Daniel Creighton, The Mercury, Pottstown, "Fire ravages 3 buildings"
The contests were judged by editors at AP member newspapers in Colorado. The great thing about the PAPME contest is that cash awards are presented to the first-place winners in addition to a plaque.
