Scoring awards from Truck Writers of North America? Sweet.

By Land Line staff

The Truck Writers of North America Communication Awards is now in its 11th year of recognizing excellence in trucking industry journalism.

The awards dinner takes place every year at MATS. This year, the TWNA Communication Awards program generated 97 entries, ranging from newspaper and magazine articles to covers and layouts to press events. Only 70 scored high enough to earn an award. Only a select few scored division “bests.”

It’s a tough peer-judged competition, and when you see some of the other entries it’s always humbling. The trucking press is an extraordinary group – remarkable in fact. Some of the writing, the art, the video we saw showcased was impressive.

OOIDA media won seven gold awards, one silver and five bronze awards.

The Best of Division Awards are the biggies and Best of Radio went to Host Mark Reddig, Senior Engineer/Producer Barry Spillman and Second Sound Engineer James Fetzer for a segment on Glenn Childress, “Driver of Presidents.”

A second Best of Division award went to LL Editor-in-Chief Sandi Soendker who was awarded Best of Internet for a blog that took her to the Missouri Veterans Cemetery to participate in a Wreaths Across America ceremony.

Kudos to Today’s Trucking – the excellent Canadian magazine that won the Best of the Best.  LL
