SPARK wins awards from Society of Professional Journalists

Library publication placed in Top of the Rockies contest


Anythink Libraries earned awards April 20 at the Colorado Society of Professional Journalists Top of the Rockies contest for its magazine SPARK.

The annual judged contest highlights excellence in journalism for reporters, designers and publications in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.

SPARK received second place in the Special Section catetory for “Everyone is creative”; second place in the Info Graphic category for “Find your next volunteer opportunity”; and third place for Single Page Design for “Which goat are you?”

“At Anythink, our vision is to be the catalyst for innovation in Adams County. We do this by celebrating ideas and inspiration in our community, and opportunities for learning -- and SPARK is a physical manifestation of this vision,” Stacie Ledden, Anythink director of innovations and brand strategy, said in a news release. “The Society of Professional Journalists has recognized the work of our team in awarding SPARK. We are thrilled to share this honor with Anythink staff and our community, who provide the many voices and perspectives that fill its pages.”

SPARK is designed to connect its readers with people, places, ideas and inspiration meant to education and illuminate. Published three times a year, it includes original articles, essays, photography and design from Anythink staff and guest contributors. It’s available at all seven Anythink locations, online at anythinklibraries.org and in select locations throughout Adams County. This is the second year in a row in which SPARK has placed in the Top of the Rockies contest.
