MWR received a first-place Award of Excellence in “art/design/graphics: newspaper front page” for the Aug. 29 issue (pictured above). The judge said the page “powerfully shows the reach and vision of Mennonites” with “an enticing mix of stories. Yet the page doesn’t neglect a homey touch — running a caption-only photo of two smiling preteens on their first day at a Mennonite school in Sarasota, Fla.”
