The Barrow Journal was honored as one of the state’s top weekly newspapers by the Georgia Press Association last week.
The Journal finished second in the GPA’s Better Newspaper Contest in overall General Excellence for its division, one of the highest honors for a newspaper in the state.
The Journal brought home four first place awards, including Best Sports Section, Best News Photo, Best Serious Column and for the second year in a row, Best Editorial Writing.
In addition, the Journal finished second in Best Sports Writing and third in Best Sports Photo.
“I’m very proud the Journal has been recognized for its coverage of Barrow County,” said co-publisher Mike Buffington. “To be named among the state’s best newspapers is a very high honor."
