Contest Participants by Circulation Division

Are you curious to know which newspapers you're competing against in OPA's Better Newspaper Contest? Here are the circulation divisions, which were pre-determined based on the total paid circulation shown on each newspaper's USPS Statement of Ownership published in October 2017.

Entries will be judged by members of the Kansas Press Association, and award notifications will be mailed to participants in the spring. Plaques will be awarded on June 16 at the awards banquet during the OPA Annual Convention on June 15-16 at the Grand Casino Hotel in Shawnee.
