The Journal-World took first place in special sections and placed in five other categories in the 1992 Kansas Press Assn. Better Newspaper Contest.
Winners in the competition among the state's large daily newspapers were announced Friday night at the Lawrence Holidome, where the KPA is holding its centennial convention.
The winning entry in the special sections category was the Journal-World's KU Edition, which was published last August. It was cited by judges as being thorough and well done.
The Journal-World also had two second-place finishes and three third-place finishes in the competition.
The second-place finishes came in categories for advertising and editorial writing.
The third-place awards were for use of photographs, sports pages and family living pages.
