Magazine Wins National Recognition

Colorado Country Life magazine won three national awards at the August National Rural Electric Cooperatives Association Statewide Editors Association annual summer meeting in Alabama.

Competing with 32 other electric cooperative statewide magazines, CCL won two first place awards and one award of merit.

The magazine won first place in the Best Editorial category for the February 2019 Viewpoint column by Colorado Rural Electric Association Executive Director Kent Singer. In the column, Singer noted that a New York Times look at rural America lacked a rural perspective. CCL also won first place in the Best Photo category for a photo in the April 2019 issue by Chris Coleman of Merino sculptor Bradford Rhea’s workshop.

Magazine Production Manager and Designer Cassi Gloe also won a Best Cover Award of Merit for the February 2019 cover of a dirt bike rider with a prosthetic leg.
