The Houston Herald received 21 awards Saturday afternoon in the state’s Missouri Press Association Better Newspaper Contest.
The results were announced in conjunction with the organization’s 152nd annual convention in St. Louis.
The judging, which included work published in 2017, was conducted by a panel of out-of-state judges.
It is the sixth consecutive year the Herald has won more than 20 awards. The newspaper won four first place awards, including feature photography, governmental coverage, business coverage and one of the contest’s top categories, community service. The Herald won second place in other seven categories and third in five other competitions.
