Journalism professionals have judged reporting by BeaverCountian.com to be among the best in twenty-nine counties in Western Pennsylvania and neighboring counties in Eastern Ohio and Northern West Virginia.

BeaverCountian.com’s reporting from 2018 has been recognized by its peers in a broad range of categories including news features, politics & government, medical & health, science & environment, history & culture, education, profiles, and a double recognition for investigative reporting.

Congratulations! These honors and awards are certainly merited. The Beaver Countian is a rare gem and of increasingly greater value with newspapers on the decline. Without this reporting, our government would go unmonitored and its actions unreported.
