ILCA 2008 Media Contest Awards

Just received a letter from the International Labor Communications Association informing me that I won a few awards in their 2008 media contest, one of which for a piece I wrote about New Orleans musicians when I attended the ILCA Media Contest in that fair city last year, which you can read here.

Though I didn’t fare quite as well as last year, it’s still nice to be recognized for my work! (Click on the links below the awards to see the winning entries.)

Winning awards rules. Because the International Labor Communications Association has recognized some of my work in its 2007 media contest, my work just might fly me out to New Orleans for the convention in October.
