Rogers most celebrated news writer in North American contest (09/25/2013)
By Sarah Squires
The Winona Post's Chris Rogers received top accolades for newspaper reporting from the Independent Free Papers of America (IFPA) annual newspaper contest, in which newspapers from the U.S. and Canada vie for a handful of prestigious awards.

Rogers netted highest honors in two reporting categories open to news journalists, bringing home first place awards in both the news and feature categories. The twin win in his first ever professional newspaper contest makes him the most awarded news journalist at the North American IFPA conference.

For Roger's news story entitled "Trouble on the bus: what parents need to know," judges from Western New England University awarded a first place. His "Below the surface" feature article about cave exploration in Southeast Minnesota also beat all other feature entries submitted in the annual competition.

"Chris has a natural gift for writing that absolutely shines," explained Winona Post Editor Sarah Squires. "Not only is he a true storyteller, but an exhaustive researcher who is always ready to tackle complex issues with sensitivity and thoughtfulness. We at the Winona Post, along with the 24,000 households we reach twice a week, are honored to have Chris to deliver the most in-depth news coverage in the Winona region."

"The Winona Post strives to have an intelligent, dedicated news staff with excellent writing skills," said Publisher Frances Edstrom. "Chris Rogers helps us to fulfill that goal, and represents the best in young journalists. We feel very fortunate to have him in Winona."

Rogers, who is originally from Chillicothe, Mo., attended Luther College before joining the Winona Post in December 2012.
