TPA has some exciting news to share: the Arkansas Press Association 2013 Better Newspaper News-Editorial Contest will be judged at one of our members' favorite locations ... Texas Christian University in Fort Worth!
Our friends at the Texas Center for Community Journalism have graciously agreed to host the event. The judging will be held Thursday, May 2 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This will be the first time TPA has held a Better Newspaper Contest judging outside of Austin.
We're looking for about 40 volunteers. If you can't make it to Fort Worth, you can still participate. Arkansas Press Association will ship some of their larger categories to a few volunteers around April 15 — judges will have about three weeks to select winners and return the entries.
If you would like to serve as a judge, either on site or remotely, please contact Laura King at
