For the second year in a row, The Carillon has been named the best all-round community newspaper in its class in the country.

Winners of the 2019 Canadian Community Newspaper Awards were announced Tuesday.

The Carillon collected a total of eight honours, including best front page in its circulation class.

The 73-year-old publication also garnered second and third place finishes in its class in the best editorial page category.

The annual Christmas issue stacked up well against the competition, taking second place in its class in the best holiday edition category.

For the third consecutive year, editor Grant Burr placed first in class in the best national editorial category. This year, judges recognized a May 17, 2018 editorial by Burr criticizing an outburst by Provencher MP Ted Falk in the House of Commons.

The work of sports editor Terry Frey was also celebrated, as his section once again took second place in its class for best sports coverage.

In the best agricultural story category, reporter Jordan Ross earned second place for an Aug. 2, 2018 feature on the restoration of a heritage barn in Neubergthal.

The CCNAs are judged from entries published in 2018 from community newspapers across Canada. The Rocky Mountain Outlook, covering the Banff region of Alberta, captured first place for General Excellence.

Last month, The Carillon won 10 provincial awards at the Manitoba Community Newspapers Association’s annual awards competition.
