Anythink wins awards from Society of Professional Journalists

SPARK, Anythink’s magazine, was recently awarded three awards by the Society of Professional Journalists as part of their Top of the Rockies regional contest on April 16. This annual judged contest highlights excellence in journalism for reporters and publications in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming in a variety of categories based on subject matter and circulation. SPARK received the following awards: first place in Agriculture: General Reporting for “Building agricultural STEAM”; first place in Feature Page Design for “Building agricultural STEAM”; and third place in Info Graphic for “What will your adventure be?”

“It is an incredible honor for a library publication to be recognized for its journalistic integrity in this way,” says Anythink Director of Innovations and Brand Strategy Stacie Ledden. “Our team works tirelessly to create a magazine that celebrates the voices, ideas and innovations here in Adams County and beyond. Thank you to the Society of Professional Journalists for recognizing their hard work through these awards.”

SPARK is designed to connect its readers with people, places, ideas and inspiration meant to educate and illuminate. It includes original articles and design, including feature stories, essays and artwork. Published three times a year, SPARK is available at all Anythink libraries, online and, starting this summer, at locations throughout Adams County.
