The Green River Star was recognized for excellence in several categories during the Wyoming Press Association’s 123rd winter convention in Casper last weekend.
Staff writer Hannah Romero received two Pacemaker awards from the WPA. She earned first place in general news writing for her article “Advocating for missing indigenous peoples” and second place in arts and entertainment writing for coverage of plays hosted by the Actors’ Mission and Western Wyoming Community College.
Editor David Martin received four Pacemakers. He placed second in column writing for opinion columns focused on the closure of the Bridger underground mine, Wyoming Liberty Group founder Susan Gore’s spy ring and a column about accidentally misidentifying a deer.
He also received honorable mentions in government issue reporting, energy and business reporting and headline writing.
Martin was also unanimously voted to the WPA’s board of directors for a three-year term.
