Headlight earns Mississippi Press Association awards

The Prentiss Headlight brought home two awards from the 150th annual Mississippi Press Association conference in Biloxi Saturday.

The newspaper won first place awards in the Front Page and Editorials category.

The judges described the Headlight’s ‘From the Center’ editorials as a  “Unique perspective & great read. Applicable to the average person. Likable, not too heavy content-but well thought out and communicated.” The judges noted “Great graphic design” as the determining factor for the Front Page category win.

“We’re very proud of all winners in the 2015 contest,” said Layne Bruce, MPA executive director. “These award winners underscore the hard work men and women are doing every day at their newspapers, which are still the number one source for news and information in every county of the state.”

The 2015 Better Newspaper Contest was judged by volunteers from the Tennessee Press Association.
