Herald-Outlook wins two awards in newspaper contest

The North Seattle Herald-Outlook brought home two awards from the annual Washington Newspaper Publishers Association (WNPA) convention held in Yakima on Oct. 5 and 6.

Editor Vera M. Chan-Pool took first-place honors in the Group IV circulation group (the highest circulation level) for Best News or Feature Headlines.

The winning headlines include "Matchmaking Lacks the Spark," "Mom, Son in Slugfest Over Slimy Mollusk" and "There's No Safety in These Numbers."

Ronnie Perkins, former Herald-Outlook art-department manager, garnered second place in the Best Group of Ads category for a Wallingford theme page.

Chan-Pool has been Herald-Outlook editor for nearly six years. She took third place in the WNPA headline-writing open competition in 2003.
