Your sponsorship will give you the opportunity to meet the decision makers of the industry and help you get your message across. It will help the AWNA continue to encourage, recognize and reward the hard work and achievements of the community newspaper staff. 
Over the years, AWNA has co-operated with other Alberta industry partners or initiated by itself, a number of successful awards, recognition programs and scholarships. The fact that these activities have consistently proved useful to individuals and our membership, is testimony to their value.
