CORNWALL, Ontario – Cornwall Seaway News like many local papers across the province of Ontario is a member of the Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA).

Every year, this paper submits the best we have to offer for consideration in the OCNA’s Better Newspaper Awards.
This year, Seaway News received the nod and was nominated in three different categories. We are proud to say that we have been nominated for Best Use of Colour in an Ad, Best Website, and Best Headline Writing.

The headlines that were submitted to the OCNA for consideration were “Weed facts to toke into consideration”, “Big stink around garbage deal”, and “Would you Give a Shirt?”.

“Seaway News has been a proud community newspaper for the past 35 years and making the top of these awards categories is quite the honour,” said Seaway News Publisher General Manager Rick Shaver. “Over the past years we have been winners and we hope to continue this tradition in April in Toronto.”

Shaver credits the hard work of his team for producing a quality product worthy of recognition.

“The staff works hard and Seaway News readers have experienced excellent editorial writing, now both in print and on our website,” he said. “Our sale staff is front center every day working with their clients on new ideas on the web, paper and our magazines.”

The OCNA Awards dinner takes place April 3 in Toronto.
