CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER for long-time OWAC member, Tom Stienstra -- the Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA) recognized him in their 2012 Excellence in Craft (EIC) competition with two awards!
Tom was awarded second place in the Radio/Podcast Outdoor Fun and Adventure category for "A Christmas Wish," which was broadcast on his KCBS-74, San Francisco radio show on December 24, 2011.
He also took second place honors in the Newspaper Fishing category for "Flyfisher Ed Rice cast away while he still can." The article was published in the San Francisco Chronicle on October 9, 2011.
All of the 2012 EIC award winners will be recognized at the 85th Annual OWAA conference this September in Fairbanks, Alaska. Cheers and high-fives to you, Tom!
