Thank you to everyone who participated in our

2013 WPA Contest Results

Kate Martin was the sweepstakes winner in Washington Press Association's annual communications contest for work done in 2013. Rita Robison was runner-up. Sweepstakes awards are based on the number of awards as well as placings.

In the college division, students from Western Washington University won the sweepstakes award, while Everett Community College and University of Washington-Tacoma tied for runner up. Each school will receive a donation to its scholarship fund from WPA, with a request that the money be designated for students in journalism and communications programs.

Awards were presented at WPA's annual luncheon at the Museum of Flight in Tukwila. Robert McClure, founder and executive director of Investigate West, was the guest speaker.

People are welcome to join WPA at any time, membership is $20 for professional journalists and communicators, $10 for students.

You can join online or print this form and mail us a check for your fees.
