Burnet Bulletin

The Burnet Bulletin was recognized as one of the top newspapers in the state of Texas during the 140th annual Texas Press Association Convention & Trade Show held Jan. 16-18 at Moody Gardens Hotel, Convention Center & Spa in Galveston.

The Bulletin won five awards in the 2018-19 TPA Better Newspaper Contest, including two first-place plaques, and finished tied for second in Division 9 for Sweepstakes, which is determined by number of points earned overall.

“It is an honor to work with a news staff that has such exceptional skill and experience as the Burnet Bulletin team,” said publisher Jeff Shabram. “Under the leadership of Lew Cohn, the team keeps a laser focus on the issues and news that is vital to support our communities.

“Quality news is paramount to a healthy community and these awards are indicative of the value of our journalist. I join the Texas Press Association in extending congratulating our team for these much deserved awards.”

Staff writers Savanna Gregg and Nathan Hendrix won first place in Feature Writing for a pair of outstanding stories — one on the effort by the City of Burnet to restore the static airplane displays at the Burnet Municipal Airport, and the other on a Burnet County inmate who has found redemption through faith. . . .
