The Jackson County Times is proud to announce that Sports Editor Shelia Mader was awarded second place in the Sports Column category by the Florida Press Association.

The award-winning article penned by Mader titled “Coach Hud” A Legend Then…A Legend Now was featured on the Sports section front page in the October 23, 2014 edition of the TIMES.

Mader has covered Jackson County sporting events for 15 years and has been the tireless Sports Editor at the TIMES for about a year. “I have a true love of sports, and to be able to write about something you love makes your job truly a dream job. The excitement of those who work hard, practice hard and play hard when they see their name in the paper is one of the greatest feelings ever,” says Mader. “It was an honor to say the least, to be recognized by the Florida Press Association for my work.”

Weekly newspapers from all over the state of Florida were considered in the Better Weekly Newspaper Contest with more than 1600 entrants. The contest was organized into three circulation divisions for published works during the 2014 calendar year and judged by out-of-state industry executives.

This prestigious award was presented to Mader during the ceremony and luncheon at the Florida Press Annual Convention held in Lake Mary, Florida July 24.
