Editor's blog: Our papers won a dozen awards

Written by 

Our newspapers were honored with 12 awards Friday, March 31, at the annual Wisconsin Community Papers conference. This year’s event was held at the Abbey Resort in Fontana.

CSI Media, part of Bliss Communications, publishes Walworth County Sunday, the Walworth County Shopper/Advertiser, the Stateline News and the Janesville Messenger, along with a variety of specialty publications.

Wisconsin Community Papers is a trade group that represents free community papers and shoppers throughout the state.

This year, Walworth County Sunday won second place for general excellence in the category that included papers with the most news content.

This is the seventh year in a row that a CSI Media newspaper has placed either first or second in the category.

CSI Media earned six advertising awards, including first place in the Create an Ad contest.

For the contest, ad designers use their own creative ideas to design a series of advertisements for a common advertiser.

CSI designer Katie Busateri’s ads won first place, and she received $100 for her efforts.

Other winning ads include:

First place, Beloit Auction and Realty, real estate ad larger than a half page, Stateline News

First Place, Dr. Ken Johnson Family Dentistry, health care ad, Stateline News

Four stories won awards in the news categories, including:

First place, Margaret Plevak, Walworth County Sunday, in the feature writing category for her story on shipwrecks and other curiosities at the bottom of Geneva Lake.

Second place, Margaret Plevak, Walworth County Sunday, in the feature writing category for her story on Delavan’s prominent role in circus history.

Second place, Todd Mishler, Janesville Messenger, in the sports writing category for his story on fathers who coach their high-school aged children.
