The Catholic Spirit won two first place awards and a second place award in the annual newspaper competition of the Catholic Press Association of the United States and Canada. The awards were presented June 26 at the annual Catholic Media Conference, held this year in Buffalo, New York. First-place honors went to Dave Hrbacek, staff writer and photographer, for best feature writing and best reporting on children and teens. Judges praised Hrbacek’s “excellently written” feature story about Justina Hausmann, whose father died trying to save someone in the Aug. 1, 2007, I-35 bridge collapse. Hrbacek’s story about Extreme Faith Camp on Big Sandy Lake near McGregor also won first place. “Faith in the Public Arena,” a column by members of the Minnesota Catholic Conference staff, earned second place for best regular general commentary column.
