October 15, 2020
She did it again.
As she has done before, Wahkiakum County Eagle reporter Diana Zimmerman received prizes for articles entered in the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association Better Newspaper Contest.
The awards were:
First place, Sports Personality Profile, about Lee Tischer and his career helping run the yardage chains at Wahkiakum football games, published Nov. 7, 2019. Judges commented, "Reader does not have to be a football fan to appreciate this profile. Nor does a profile require a lengthy piece."
Third place, General Feature Story, Long for her story, Musician Created Memorable Memories, about the father of an Elochoman man and his life as a professional musician in New Jersey, published Oct. 31, 2019. Judges commented, "Creativity shines and quotes and storylines engage and entertain."
