Stockman wins awards at South Texas Press

The Ozona Stockman won several awards in the South Texas Press Association’s 2019 Better Newspaper Contest. 
Editor and Publisher Melissa Perner won second place in Serious Column Writing for her columns “I believe in newspapers” and “Community newspapers are needed more than ever.”
Perner also won third place in Editorial Writing for editorials dealing with last summer’s newsprint tariff issue. 
In the Sports Photo category, Perner and Advertising Director Susan Calloway both earned second place awards.
Perner’s entry was from the rainy football game this past fall between the Ozona Lions and the Iraan Braves. 
Calloway’s entry was a great catch made by Zachary Talmantez during an Ozona Lion Baseball Game last spring. 
The contest was based on entries from 2018. 
Perner and her family received the awards at the 93rd annual South Texas Press Association Convention last week in La Grange, Texas.
