Booster wins two first places awards

The Tyler County Booster is the recipient of two first-place awards in the Better Newspaper Contest, sponsored by the Texas Press Association (TPA). Awards were announced on June 22 at the Hyatt Regency in Houston.

This year 148 newspapers submitted 1,505 entries, which were placed into 10 divisions, in which newspapers competed against those of similar circulation size, according to TPA. The Booster took first place in Special Sections and in Web Site.

In the Special Sections category, the Booster submitted the 2012 Discover Tyler County Magazine for a first place win. Judges wrote, "Talented staff gave professional look to this Special. Well-deserved first place in a competitive category".

In the Web Site category, the Booster submitted www.tylercountybooster.com for the win. Judges said, "I love this site. The layout is clean and aesthetically pleasing. I like the splash and top stories on the home page. There's great use of space throughout the site, and it's easy to navigate. My only critiques are if there's a photo gallery section, I couldn't find it. Also, the story font is a tad small. Otherwise, great site!

The 2013 contest was judged by the Arkansas Press Association as part of the annual Better Newspaper Contest swap.
