Awards Presentation
If you haven't contacted SCPA Executive Director Bill Rogers to set up a time when he can come present your newspaper's awards, give him a call at (803) 750-9561 or email Bill. Whether you want to present your awards at a brief ceremony in your newspaper's conference room or you want to take your staff out for a special event (like a luncheon), Bill can join you and present awards to your staff's winners. Or, we can mail your awards to you. Just let us know what you'd like to do and we'll start planning.

We want your photos!
Please share photos with us of your newspaper's #PALMYAwards celebrations! We'll feature them in the weekly eBulletin newsletter and on SCPA's Facebook page.
