New England newspaper group announces First Amendment awards

I attended the annual meeting today of the New England Newspaper Association, where NENA announced the winners of the first Morley L. Piper First Amendment Award, named for NENA's longtime executive director. The winners were The Republican of Springfield and The Providence Journal. NENA's awards committee decided last year to establish the annual award to highlight the work that newspapers do in educating and upholding the First Amendment.

For more on the awards, read this AP report.
