2003 - Media Award - Print Media - The Newkirk Herald Journal

In most places, it's not front page news when students volunteer to beautify their community, but in Newkirk that's a common honor they receive from the Newkirk Herald Journal.

The newspaper and Wayne White, its editor, put an emphasis on youth and on educating the public about environmental issues and beautification opportunities. When that spotlight  shines on the Newkirk Junior Main Street program, the result is wonderful recognition and encouragement for the young environmental stewards to continue their efforts.

Our judges say, "The community should be very grateful for this newspaper that involves the youth" of the community. We agree and we're happy to proclaim that the Newkirk Herald Journal is good news - in more ways than one - for environmentally aware and responsible kids in Oklahoma.
