Prairie State Outdoors wins print, online awards

October 21, 2013 at 07:10 AM

The State Journal-Registerr

Prairie State Outdoors recently has been recognized as the best outdoors section/page by the Association of Great Lakes Outdoor Writers, which has media, corporate and tourism members from 30 states.

In addition, the group’s annual awards recognized PSO editor Chris Young’s video work with first and second place.

First place went to his Jake Wolf Fish Hatchery video series, while second place went to the Backyard Birding video series.

Young also won second place for an outdoors recreation photo.

The print edition of Prairie State Outdoors was launched in The State Journal-Register last January, becoming a regular feature of the Friday paper.

Prior to that, it had served a growing audience online and through social media.

It’s great recognition for our outdoors coverage, which benefits from increasing reader contributions.

Young regularly receives photos from readers throughout Illinois, and they’re featured in print and online.

Prairie State Outdoors includes news from Illinois and surrounding states, including contributions from other GateHouse Illinois newspapers including the Peoria Journal-Star and Rockford Register Star.

Bob Heisse is the editor of The State Journal-Register.
