Catholic Review wins journalism award for youth conference coverage

Matt Palmer, staff writer for The Catholic Review, earned an award of excellence from the Associated Church Press in a journalism competition sponsored by the organization.

Announced during an April 27-29 convention in Chicago, the award was in a category for convention or meeting coverage. It recognized Palmer’s coverage of the Baltimore Youth Catholic Conference in Ocean City last year.

The judges said the story had “lively writing,” with “good quotes from participants and organizers.” Palmer won the same award last year.
