The Lee’s Summit Journal brought home three awards from last week’s Missouri Advertising Manager’s Association convention in Lake Ozark.
Graphic Designer Ashlee Hendrix was awarded a second place in the statewide competition for best newspaper insert for her work on the Journal’s quarterly sports section, Varsity News.
Hendrix also won honorable mention awards for best house ad (the Journal Pumpkin Patch event) and best newspaper promotion (for the Journal’s partnership with the Lion’s Club).
It was the first MAMA awards earned by the Journal in several years.
“Ashlee has been with us less than a year, but her talents made an impact on the look and quality of our newspaper immediately,” Publisher John Beaudoin said. “Having a quality graphic artist on staff helps every corner of our operation, from advertising to circulation to news. We’re fortunate to have Ashlee here and able to further elevate our level of success.”
