Observer wins two Ohio SPJ awards
The Ohio Society of Professional Journalists Awards competition announced in July that The Dayton Jewish Observer is the recipient of two of its first-place 2017 awards.
Freelancer Michelle Tedford received the award for Best Medical/Science Reporting for her October 2016 article, Sweet project to save bees, crops.
Observer Editor and Publisher Marshall Weiss received the award for Best Religion Reporting for his May 2016 article, Censorship or equalization? Bible removed from Wright-Patt POW/MIA display.
This brings the number of first-place Ohio SPJ Awards to nine for The Observer since the Jewish Federation established the publication in 1996: the third for Tedford and the fourth for Weiss.
