DENVER – The Aspen Times performed strongly in the Colorado Press Association’s 2009 Newspaper Contest, winning 14 individual awards and the editorial sweepstakes prize, as well.

The editorial sweepstakes award goes to the newspaper in each of six size categories that wins the most reporting/writing honors. The Times competes in Class 5, which covers newspapers ranging from 7,500 to 15,000 in circulation.

“In a year when we had to cut staff and struggle to put the paper out, it’s both surprising and rewarding to get this kind of peer recognition,” said Times Editor Bob Ward.
