Reflejos wins seven national awards
Reflejos, the weekly bilingual journal owned by the Daily Herald Media Group, won seven awards at annual convention of the National Association of Hispanic Publications.
It took a Gold award for an article speaking to the need for Latino nurses and the benefits of that profession and Gold for its annual "Reflecting Excellence" event, which honors organizations, businesses and institutions that readers say reflect excellence in the services and products they bring to the Latino communities. The event also honors young Latino student leaders, and Reflejos presents each student with a scholarship, as they begin their next journey.
Reflejos also took five other national awards, including
• Silver -- Award marketing piece
• Silver -- College & Career guides
• Silver -- Health & Wellness section
• Silver -- Cover -- "We Are With You" on the El Paso shootings
• Bronze -- www.reflejos.com epublication.
"With over 95% of the Latino population today flowing between two languages, Reflejos continues its mission of bringing news content in a format that all members of a family can share," said Linda Siete, manager of Sales and Operations. "When asked why we serve much of our publication in a bilingual format, my response has been that for the communities we serve Spanish is the language of their identity and heritage and English the language of their progress."
Reflejos is celebrating 30 years in business, the past 20 with the Daily Herald Media Group.
