The Christian Leader was awarded fourth place in the Evangelical Press Association’s Best in Class Contest. Winners were announced Oct. 2.
Judges complimented the magazine’s “bright, airy cover” and “good clear writing.” One judge wrote, “Good emphasis overall on what USMB folks are doing.”
The Best in Class contest categories were determined by circulation ranges for print magazines, with a nearly even number of contestants in each category. For most magazines, contestants competed against a different group of magazines than in the Awards of Excellence contest where competition is divided by type of magazine. The CL competed in Class F, circulation of 4,001 to 8,000.
