The Stanton Register not only was named the top newspaper in its division on Thursday, but the newspaper was named the second best in the entire state of Nebraska.
During Thursday’s Nebraska Press Association awards, the Register was recognized as runner-up in the sweepstakes category. The Register was second to only the Antelope County News, which is also owned by Pitzer Digital. The Pitzer Digital newspapers went 1-2-3 in the state with the Knox County News named the third best in Nebraska.
Among the dozens of awards for the Register were the Omaha World-Herald Community Service Award, which recognized the community of Stanton for its effort to save their local newspaper.
A full list of awards will be posted later today.
