Best layout among biweekly and monthly papers (for Robert Ortiz’s work)

The highest award of all, General Excellence!

Our paper is run with a very small, but equally dedicated staff. Each with their own vision, backed by hard work and determination. The outcome is a tribal newspaper that continues to hold its own across Indian Country.

Best, Jeremy
