Senior Voice wins awards in national media contest
A nationwide media contest has recognized Senior Voice for excellence. The 2013 National Mature Media Awards contest awarded Senior Voice for three entries:
• a Silver award for regular contributor Stephanie Jaeger’s article, “Choosing Protective Sunscreens and Clothing”
• a Merit award for writer Douglas Yates’ article, “Energy Costs Ignite Interior”
• and a Silver award for the publication as a whole for its February 2012 issue.
The National Mature Media Awards received a record number of entries for this year’s contest showcasing the nation’s very best materials developed for the senior market.
The contest draws entries from organizations both small and large from all over the country, said Senior Voice Editor David Washburn.
“Winning an award in this competition is truly an accomplishment. It puts our paper in excellent company,” Washburn said.
Senior Voice is in its 35th year of publication by Older Persons Action Group, Inc. and is distributed statewide, free to low-income seniors. Senior Voice content is also available online at http://www.seniorvoicealaska.com.
Senior Voice is funded in part through a grant from the Alaska State Dept. of Health and Social Services.
