Bennett wins three firsts to lead TribStar in state competition

TERRE HAUTE — Tribune-Star columnist Mark Bennett won three first-place awards at the 2014 Indiana Associated Press Media Editors annual news writing and photography contest last weekend.

Bennett captured first-place honors for his five-part feature series, “500 Miles of Wabash,” which explored the history and present-day Wabash River from its origin in Ohio to its end at the Ohio River. He also received first-place awards in the categories of editorial writing and general interest column writing.

Tribune-Star photographer Joseph Garza also received first-place honors for his photo package, “A Heart for Katelyn,” which documented the story of a young Terre Haute girl’s heart transplant.

Garza also received a second-place award in the sports photography category for his picture captioned “Drive in reverse,” an action photo of basketball star Jake Odum during a November 2013 Indiana State University basketball victory over Ball State.

Tribune-Star sports editor Todd Golden captured second- and third-place awards. He took second place in nondeadline sports reporting for his story “ISU seeks specificity in drug testing penalties.”

He captured third in deadline sports reporting for his story “Magical Night” which chronicled the Sycamores’ stunning 2013 men’s basketball victory over Creighton in Hulman Center.

Reporter Arthur Foulkes took a third-place award for the story, “A town disappearing,” a nondeadline news reporting story about the village of Dresser.

The Tribune-Star staff also received a second-place award in the category best use of digital platforms and third-place award for front page design.

The 2014 Indiana APME awards were presented Friday evening in Indianapolis. The Tribune-Star, with a paid circulation of approximately 20,000, competes in a division for Hoosier newspapers with circulations between 18,000 and 40,000 and includes newspapers in Muncie, Kokomo, Bloomington, Lafayette and other medium-size cities.

The Tribune-Star’s 10 total awards was the second highest among newspapers in its circulation division.
