National Award News!

Happy News. Happy Orthopedic Boot Dance.

National award news

Exciting news to share! My Matzo Chronicles column just won a national journalism award.

More specifically, the National Federation of Press Women (NFPW) recognized the column’s writing for my story, “Memories of a Short-Order Cook.”

Published online and in newspapers in the US and abroad, The Matzo Chronicles offers my reflections about family, friendship, food, and modern life. You can also read it on my website.

National Award Competition

In all, nearly 2,000 entries were submitted to the NFPW competition from across the U.S. and Canada.

“The NFPW professional communications contest puts a spotlight on outstanding entries from throughout the United States,” says Helen S. Plotkin, NFPW professional contest director. “Our judges continue to comment about the high quality of entries they judge in the contest. The entries showcase high quality and exceptional efforts.”

The award ceremony took place this past Saturday at the NFPW’s annual meeting in St. Louis, MO.

I couldn’t attend since I’m still recovering from that blasted “minor” double foot surgery. (“Minor” is a term I now know refers to a procedure performed on you, NOT on an MD!) Still, I’m doing a happy dance here at home albeit in my not-so-chic, oh-so-clunky black and gray orthopedic boots!

My sincere thanks to the NFPW board of directors and judges. I am genuinely thrilled and honored.

My thanks also to my column publishers, editors, my theater-pal/mystery author friend Laura Shea who is always on the ready to review, comment, critique and laugh, and, of course, Handsome Hubby, who is my bashert, which is Yiddish for soulmate (not bad for a good Catholic boy, eh?).

Finally, a huge thank you to my lovely and loyal readers who not only read my column (and blog) but write to me with interesting comments and ideas.

I applaud you all!!! 👏 👏 👏
