Here's a look at the Standard-Times' award-winning work from 2019 contests
The San Angelo Standard-Times staff earned 24 awards recently in journalism contests at the statewide and national level.
Of those awards, 20 came from the Texas Associated Press Managing Editors annual contest, while four were from the Associated Press Sports Editors national contest.
The awards spanned a range of categories in writing, photography and video storytelling.
The Standard-Times, a part of the USA Today Network, competed against newspapers in the Class AA division — the second-smallest of four divisions — in the APME contest. Contest entries were judged by journalists from outside Texas.
The Standard-Times earned seven first-place awards.
In the APSE contest, the Standard-Times was up against newspapers and web sites from around the nation in Category D, the smallest of the four categories.
The Standard-Times had three entries earn Top 10 national recognition.
