The Carillon had a strong showing at the Manitoba Community Newspapers Association's annual awards on Saturday night, winning 11 awards in the annual competition.

The night began with a festive start for the newspaper, as The Carillon was recognized for having the best Christmas edition of the past year.

Reporter Jordan Ross was recognized with a second place award for agricultural writing for his feature story on the disappearance of cattle from New Country Ranch near Zhoda. Ross got another second place nod for environmental writing, for a story about beet juice being used to combat ice on the streets and sidewalks of La Broquerie.

Reporter Dave Baxter earned two awards on Saturday, but not just for The Carillon. Baxter garned a second place award in the best tourism story category for exploring the Poutine Trail. He also took third place in the best education story category for a piece he wrote for the Selkirk Journal, prior to joining The Carillon last summer.

Editor Grant Burr won a first place education writing award for his story about the work of Grunthal teacher Michael Zwaagstra to develop world religion course curriculum for the province's education department. Burr was also selected for second place honours for an editorial on Bell MTS and its services in the Southeast.

Designer Janet Begalke-Smith notched a second place win for best in-house ad design, for a full page advertisement for the Carillon Homes website.

The Carillon's bi-monthly special agriculture section, Agriculture Now, was also named as one of the best in the province, with a second place award.

The paper took second place overall honours for its circulation class in the general excellence competition, with specific second place recognition awards for its editorial page as well as its layout and design.

Flin Flon newspaper, The Reminder, took home top honours as the best overall newspaper in the province at the weekend ceremony.
