The Hilltop Monitor was awarded second place in sweepstakes in its division and won 17 awards in individual categories. In addition, photo editor Kyle Rivas was named state photojournalist of the year.

“We were especially pleased by the sweepstakes award because it recognizes the broad nature of our staff’s talent,” said Nathan Weinert, editor of The Hilltop Monitor. “We have strong writers, editors, photographers and designers.
