The Sentinel newsroom celebrated a weekend of awards and honors at the 2019 Pennsylvania Press Conference with six staffers earning honors and the newsroom winning the Sweepstakes honor as the overall winner in Division IV for multiday publications under 15,000 circulation.

“This is a staff that works hard every day to deliver valuable news to our audience,” Sentinel Executive Editor Jeff Pratt said. “These awards celebrate their effort and their ability to produce content across so many different platforms, so many different story forms.

“It was nice to see the wide variety of projects, both in print and online, that earned honors. We take pride in what we do as a newsroom, what each reporter does with their stories and what role we play in this community.”

Members of the Sentinel staff were named finalists in eight categories for the 2018 Pennsylvania Associated Press Media Editors contest, and earned first-place awards in all eight categories.

PAPME announced the awards Friday night in Harrisburg.

Photographer Jason Malmont took first and second place for Best Sports Photo for “Exciting Win” and “Hard Loss.”
