CHS (again) named best local site in Washington (Plus: Alaska, Oregon, Idaho or Montana!)

CHS was recognized Saturday for two Excellence in Journalism awards presented by the chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists representing the Pacific Northwest.

  • First, we were selected again as the top hyperlocal news site in the region for our work to cover the communities of Capitol Hill in 2013. It is our second win in the category. CHS was also recognized as the top community news site for 2009.
  • CHS was also awarded for the year’s top online spot news reporting for our work to cover the chaotic and tragic police standoff and officer involved shooting that locked down the area around Bellevue and Denny Way on July 5th, 2013.

It is very humbling to have CHS again recognized by its peers from among so many worthy candidates. You can see the full list of this year’s SPJ Region 10 honorees (PDF) here.

Thanks so much to the many writers, photographers and others who have contributed to CHS over the years. It is an honor to work with you, learn new things with you and tell stories with you. Without your work, there wouldn’t be a CHS. Thanks!

Note: This will also (probably) be our final self-congratulatory post of 2014.

  1. Congratulations, Justin! Well deserved. You have earned an important place in our community, and I wish you continued success.

    Thank you too, for running my posts!

  2. Congratulations! It is indeed well-deserved. I feel more fully informed and connected to my community through this site. It is thorough, professional, and often times just downright fun to read. Keep up the excellent work.
