The North and East Texas Press Association was privileged to have the West Texas Press Association members judge this year’s contest.
A special thanks to Carlina Villalpondo, Managing Editor of Kerrville Daily Times, who coordinated the judging of the NETPA BNC.
And to the members of WTPA and volunteers — Thank you for a spectacular job!
