The entries were judged by volunteers from press clubs around the country, who spent more than a month poring over the best journalism Central New York had to offer in order to select the winners.
The Syracuse Press Club held their awards banquet on Saturday, May 6, at Drumlins Country Club. At the dinner they also celebrated SPC “Club Award” winners: Best Newcomer, Professional Standards, Best News Source and Scholarship winner, as well as the latest addition to their Wall of Distinction.
