Trail Times earns honourable mention in nation-wide competition

The Times earned a honourable mention for its 1968 front page chronicling Greene’s win.

Nancy Greene winning her Olympic gold medal put the region on the national map in 1968. And the skier nicknamed “The Little Tiger” has done it again.

The Trail Times earned a honourable mention for its 1968 front page chronicling Greene’s win in Newspapers Canada’s Front Pages competition.

A panel of judges selected the finalists for each category ranging from Canada at War to Canadian Politics to Canada on the International Stage.

“It was a panel of expert judges who determined the finalists and then the Canadian public who voted and determined the winners,” explained Taylor Korman, awards coordinator for Newspapers Canada.
