The Pella Chronicle and Clint Brown, Editor, were honored last Friday at the Iowa Newspaper Association’s Awards Banquet during the INA 2014 Convention and Trade Show held February 6-7 at the Des Moines Marriott Hotel. Presentations were also made to winners of the INA 2014 Better Newspaper Contests, which were judged by the Nebraska Press Association. Nearly 4,000 entries in dozens of categories were judged by class, based on circulation. The Pella Chronicle received First Place in the Best Video category and Third Place in the Best Slideshow category (both in the Weekly Class 2, 1,126 to 2,100 circulation).
“It’s always nice to be honored for the work we do to bring the community of Pella its news,” Brown said. “I am proud to accept this award on behalf of The Chronicle.”
