Reflejos wins five national awards
Reflejos, the weekly newspaper for Latinos published by Daily Herald parent Paddock Publications, has won five National Association of Hispanic Publications awards at its 35th annual convention in Miami.
The awards were earned for outstanding bilingual weekly, outstanding front page design, its Reflecting Excellence event and for its college guides and health and wellness editions.
Reflejos competed with publications from all over the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, all of which offer news and information to the growing Latino communities.
"These awards reaffirm that what we strive to bring to our readers is nationally recognized and valued; recognition again that our College Guides and Health & Wellness editions are key to assisting our families navigate areas that are so important to their health and success," said Linda Siete, Reflejos' manager of sales and operations.
Reflejos' annual Reflecting Excellence Event received its fourth award, recognizing its positive impact in the suburban Latino community.
"This is one of our most outstanding accomplishments, having just completed our sixth on Nov. 1, to more than 200 in attendance," Siete said. "It is an evening where we recognize the businesses and organizations that excel in what they deliver to our community, as well as outstanding student leaders. It brings together so many people to celebrate and embrace our diversity."
