Star Tribune Sports Journalists Shine in National Sports Journalism Contest

The Star Tribune Sports staff receives five Top 10 honors from APSE

Five Star Tribune sports journalists have been recognized for their outstanding work in the national sports journalism contest organized by Associated Press Sports Editors. The contest is divided into four categories: writing, photography, digital, and print.

The Star Tribune was named in the top ten for category A, which includes the largest news organizations. This recognition was based on the paper’s excellent print portfolio, event coverage on the death of Bud Grant, column writing by outdoors columnist Dennis Anderson, and short feature by NFL writer Mark Craig on Vikings rookie offensive lineman Jacky Chen. Photographer Jerry Holt also received top ten honors in feature photography.

APSE announced that the results were revealed during its annual winter meeting held in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The winners will be presented with their awards at APSE’s summer conference in Charlotte, North Carolina from June 20-22.

In addition to these accolades, APSE introduced a new national writing contest called the Billie Jean King Award. This award focuses on coverage of women’s sports and recognizes journalists who excel in this field.
