Booster wins awards in ‘Better Newspaper Contest’

by Jim Powers, Editor

The Tyler County Booster participates in two peer judged contests each year. Winners in the first of those contests, the Texas Gulf Coast Press Association's Better Newspaper Contest, were recently announced, and the Tyler County Booster won several awards in our division.

The Booster won 1st Place for our Web Site, 1st Place in Special Sections for our Discover Tyler County Magazine, 1st Place for Feature Photo, 2nd Place in News Writing, and 3rd Place for Serious Columns.

The Booster benefits from a talented team of people with decades of experience in providing local news and advertising to the people of Tyler County. We are proud of the product we produce 52 times each year, and proud of the community that supports our efforts through buying our newspapers and supporting our advertisers.
