And the Winners Are ...

The Weekly Alibi did quite well at this year’s New Mexico Press Women’s Awards. Our little paper won an overall award for best non-daily newspaper in New Mexico, a category that judges both editorial content and design.

We also won a slew of individual prizes. I’m very proud of these people. This is a young staff that works very hard, and they deserve every one of these awards and more.

Congrats, crew. Y’all done us proud.
