Fifth anniversary of APME initiative to honor two smaller newspapers

The fifth anniversary of the Associated Press Media Editors’ Community Journalism Public Service Initiative will celebrate the work of two smaller newspapers, one of which has won the grant initiative for the second straight year.

The Journal-Standard of Freeport, Ill, was named a winner in last year’s competition and won again this year for its "Freeport Fish Tank” project on its crumbling downtown. The other winner is The Daily Item of Sunbury, PA, which won for its project on heroin and prescription drug abuse crisis in its community.

"While several news organizations have tackled projects on similar issues, we felt both The Journal-Standard and The Daily Item showed fresh approaches to the projects,” said Joe Hight, chairman of APME judging panel. "We also were impressed by their records of project development and depth. We felt they were both examples to all news organization of how important these types of projects are to their communities.”

Because of generous grants from the Park and APME foundations, the initiative will award grants of $2,500 to each newspaper, plus expenses for representatives to attend the upcoming ASNE-APME conference in Philadelphia. The Park Foundation of Ithaca, NY, also funded last year’s $2,500 grants that will help the news organizations to finish their projects.
