Connie Vitello, former assistant editor of Solid Waste & Recycling magazine (and current editor of industry and environment trade publication HazMat Management) won the Gold Award for Best Editorial at the Kenneth R. Wilson (KRW) Awards ceremony on June 5, 2006.
The editorial — which examines a gasoline company’s controversial decision not to clean up a former pump station site and the subsequent environmental investigations that ensued — appeared in the October/November 2005 edition of the magazine. The article, “Fuel for the Fire,” is available online at www.hazmatmag.com
The KRW awards are presented annually by the Canadian Business Press (CBP). Business and trade magazines submit their best work in 20 different categories. The entries are judged by a peer review panel, which determines the “Top 10” entries. These entries are then passed to the official judges to determine the Gold, Silver and “Top Five” winners. Over 750 entries poured in to the CBP for this year’s competition.
HazMat Management received two other “Top 10” nominations for Best Industrial/Manufacturing, “E-Waste Solutions” and Best Resource/Infrastructure, “The Global Chemical Village,” both written by Jennifer Holloway.
