The work of Janine Faust, former editorial intern at The Northside Chronicle, has won a 2021 Golden Quill Award for her story, “Century-Old Sign Company Has True Grit.” Winners were recognized at an awards ceremony on Tuesday, Sept. 28 at the Rivers Casino Event Center.
Faust’s story won in the “Excellence in Written Journalism – History/Culture” category. According to The Northside Chronicle, the piece “profiles Warren Jones, the great-grandson of Albert Eastwood Jones Sr., who founded the Northside-based A.E. Jones Sign Co. in 1897. It also explains how he and the three generations before him have led the business with resilience through various economic downturns including the Great Depression, the Steel Crisis, and most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Northside Chronicle Managing Editor Ashlee Green was also a finalist in this year’s Golden Quill Awards for her story, “‘Tour de Quarantine’ the Brainchild of Pittsburgh Cycling Commentator.”
