Allan Dawson wins a big award

Allan Dawson, a veteran reporter for the Manitoba Cooperator newspaper, has won a prestigious U.S. award.

Manitoba Co-operator reporter Allan Dawson (r) placed first in the “news” category of the North American Agricultural Journalists’ (NAAJ) 2017 writing contest. He received the award from NAAJ president and 
Western Producer reporter/analyst Ed White April 9 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

And John Morriss, retired publisher and veteran reporter and editor for the Manitoba Cooperator, is going to be inducted into the Manitoba Agriculture Hall of Fame in June.

I am honoured to call them both friends.
