WYOMING – The Pinedale Roundup earned a first-place ribbon and two second-place entries in the 2020 Wyoming Press Association Pacemaker Awards. A voluntary panel judged contests and awards were announced on Jan. 15.
The Roundup won the open page design category for the front of the outdoors and local sports section of the Aug. 14, 2020, edition. That cover, designed by Sue Bruynes, prominently featured a sailboat to correspond with coverage of the Fremont Lake Sailing Regatta.
The Roundup also finished second in the institutional ad category and in the feature story category.
“Salute to hometown heroes,” – a full-page ad honoring health-care workers, teachers, law enforcement, active and retired military, firefighters, first responders and other essential personnel – earned silver distinctions for Roundup advertising sales consultant Cortney Reed. The story “The ultimate sacrifice,” about William Michael “Mike” Wilson from Roundup reporter Robert Galbreath finished second in the feature story category.
