The Colorado Springs Business Journal staff won four Colorado Press Association journalism contest awards this year.
Staff writer John Hazlehurst won a second-place award for editorial writing and a second-place award for feature writing, and the Business Journal staff won a joint first-place award for its collaborative work on the diversity magazine, Inclusion, and for its Leadership Energy and Environmental Design special section.
The Business Journal accepted the awards during a luncheon Saturday at The Brown Palace in Denver.
The paper was judged against other weekly newspapers throughout the state. The contest period covered Sept. 1, 2008, through Aug. 31, 2009.
