The annual Minnesota Newspaper Association (MNA) convention was held last week at the DoubleTree Hotel in Bloomington. Tribute editor Mark Wilmes picked up a first place award for Best Sports Photo at Thursday evening’s Better Newspaper Contest awards banquet. The photo was taken at the boys’ state basketball tournament in March immediately after a foul on RTR’s Carter Hansen sealed the win for the state champion Knights.
