In the area of outstanding community service the judges said the Booker T. Washington event held every April around his birthday and the annual tribute and bust to commemorate his 1914 visit to the Mission Inn, Riverside, CA was the best community service activity they had ever seen a newspaper do. It garnered a first place award.
The other first place award was Best Special Edition, for the California Underground Railroad special issue. Other winners were: Chuck Washington, Portland Observer; John Warren, San Diego Voice & Viewpoints; Pauline and Les Kimber, California Advocate; Roland and Clovis Campbell, Arizona Informant; and seated Cheryl & Hardy Brown, Black Voice News.
