Competing against thousands of daily and non-daily newspapers from across the United States, The Vienna Times won an award during the National Newspaper Association’s 2016 annual convention held in Franklin, TN last week. Publisher Lonnie Hinton, right in photo, attended the three-day convention and accepted the award on behalf of his staff.
The third place award was for a special section produced by the Times’ staff last year for the grand opening of Shawnee Mass Transit System’s corporate office in Vienna. The special section was distributed in several other affiliated newspapers within the transit system’s coverage area.
The Vienna Times has won two other awards from NNA in the last decade. Both were for local fire-scene photos taken in 2011 and 2014.
