Seven Days, Vermont’s free, independent newsweekly, won 11 first-place awards in this year’s New England Better Newspaper Competition — including for general excellence and top honors for health, crime, government, arts and entertainment reporting, political columnist, infographic, personality profile and niche publication. The paper also won eight second-place and six third-place awards — 25 total.

The contest is organized by the New England Newspaper & Press Association; winners were announced at NENPA’s annual convention this past weekend in Boston.

NENPA members submitted more than 3,000 entries, split among five categories: daily newspapers with circulation up to 25,000; daily newspapers with circulation more than 25,000; weekly newspapers with circulation up to 6,000; weekly newspapers with circulation more than 6,000; and specialty publications. Seven Days — which circulates 36,000 copies every Wednesday — competed against numerous other large, New England weeklies.

Here’s what judges had to say about Seven Days’ 11 first-place awards:

Seven Days received second-place honors for best overall website, its investigative reporting series on the nonprofit sector, Give and Take, and for Kids VT, Seven Days’ monthly parenting magazine. Alicia Freese won second place for her education reporting on Saint Michael’s College and health reporting on inmates and addiction. Molly Walsh received second place for her human interest feature on Ryan McLaren, who experienced a life-altering ski accident. Eva Sollberger brought home a second-place award for her video on the “March for our Lives” in Vermont’s capital. Lastly, Kym Balthazar came in second place for her cover illustration on the March 21, 2018, issue.
