Bodacious Thanks To The Tennessee Press Association!

Readers of this blog may remember in July when I mentioned I received a First Place Award from the Tennessee Press Association.  I received this for a series of newspaper public service ads about wildfire prevention that I created featuring Snuffy Smith and family.  The series was titled Snuff Out Wildfires Before They Start.  If you missed that blog post you can read about it here.  I finally got a photo of the award so I thought I would share it with you.  Thank you again to the Knoxville News-Sentinel, the Tennessee Press Association and King Features Syndicate for partnering with me on this very worthwhile project.  I truly appreciate the Tennessee Press Association recognizing me with this honor.
