BeaverCountian.com Wins 7 Golden Quill Awards For Excellence In Journalism

BeaverCountian.com took home seven Golden Quill awards for journalistic excellence Thursday night from the Press Club of Western Pennsylvania.

The 56th Annual Golden Quill Award winners were announced during a televised ceremony that aired on PCTV.

A panel of journalism professionals judged reporting by BeaverCountian.com to be the best among media outlets in twenty-nine counties in Western Pennsylvania and neighboring counties in Eastern Ohio and Northern West Virginia.

BeaverCountian.com’s awards are for non-daily publications, which include newspapers, magazines, and new media outlets.

Along with its seven Golden Quill wins, BeaverCountian.com’s reporting was named a finalist in five additional categories.
