The Carillon was a winner on three fronts as recipients of the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards were announced on Wednesday morning.

Carillon editor Grant Burr won first place honours for editorial writing on a national topic, for a November piece which defended Provencher MP Ted Falk’s decision to wish God’s blessing upon incoming U.S. president Donald Trump.

It is the first time Burr has received top individual writing honours nationally, after two previous second place wins for feature writing.

Carillon sports editor Terry Frey was awarded a second place award for best sports coverage after chronicling a busy year in the Southeast including major events like the Manitoba Summer Games and the return of the Allan Cup.

Frey, who serves as president of the Manitoba Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association, previously won top honours in the category last year and in 2009.

The newspaper’s annual Christmas issue was also selected as one of the highlights in the best holiday edition category, as it garnered a third place finish for last December’s Christmas edition packed with Christmas themed fare.

The CCNAs celebrate the best in community newspaper publishing from across Canada. Newspapers compete against other publications in similar circulation classes and are judged by a panel of industry experts.
