VALE – The Malheur Enterprise has been honored by the state newspaper association with 12 awards, including four first-place finishes in judging for journalistic excellence.

The weekly newspaper, based in Vale and founded in 1909, won second place in general excellence, an assessment of the Enterprise’s overall journalistic efforts.

“We work hard to provide Malheur County the kind of quality journalism that is missing from so many communities these days,” said Publisher Les Zaitz. “These awards validate that our small but determined team is providing some of the best journalism in Oregon.”

Rachel Parsons, a multimedia journalist on the staff for summer 2020, won first place . . .
