Features editors group gives Sun two awards

October 09, 2001

The Sun's features section received two awards last weekend in the annual competition held by the American Association of Sunday and Features Editors.

Sun staff writer Larry Bingham won first place in the general features category for his story about Bobby Stiles, the farmer's son from Western Maryland who chose to put college on hold to help on the family farm when his father got sick. The judges described Bingham's story this way: "Subtle, beautiful writing ... a poignant tale of family devotion and expectations." The award carries a $1,000 prize.

Staff writer Allison Klein took second place in the arts & entertainment feature category for her profile of Yale-trained, black velvet painter Tony Shore of Pigtown. Klein's story, said the judges "asked the questions: What do we consider art and education? Great attention to details, and well-crafted."
