Meridional wins four Louisiana Press Association awards
The Abbeville Meridional received four awards from the Louisiana Press Association for the 2008 Better Newspaper Competition in Division 3.
The four awards earned were: Third Place - Best News Coverage; Third Place - Best Front Page; Third Place - Best Lifestyle Coverage; and Third Place - Best News Story for Rachel Worthy’s article “‘We’re Staying.’ Don’s Boat Landing back after 2 months rebuilding.”
The award conference was held last weekend in Baton Rouge, where competitors attended from across the state.
Contest entries were judged by the Kansas Press Association based on design, creativity, writing skills and reader effectiveness. The Abbeville Meridional also received positive feedback for both sports coverage and editorial columns written by Duncan Boutwell.
