The Tattoo named Best Young People's Coverage

The Surburban Newspapers Association recently recognized The Tattoo in the organization’s 2004 annual journalism contest.

The Tattoo took first place in the category Best Young People’s Coverage for work through October 15, 2004. In making their decision, judges reviewed a number of editions of The Tattoo from last year.

This is the second time the SNA has given the award to The Tattoo. The teen paper also won in 2002.

Judges selected winners from 2,246 entries submitted from 2,000 newspapers from across the continent.

Now in its 11th year, The Tattoo offers a chance for young writers, artists and photographers to develop their skills and make a difference through a teen-written newspaper.

Jackie Majerus and Steve Collins are founders of The Tattoo and serve as advisors to the young people who join.

They are senior reporters at The Bristol Press and have volunteered their time to The Tattoo since its inception in 1994.

The Tattoo tackles tough subjects like teen suicide, school violence and world issues, but also covers travel, music, movies and more.

The Tattoo is open to any teenager in the world, though it's based in Connecticut. The group meets weekly at The Bristol Press.

Interested teenagers are always welcome, and should contact Majerus or Collins at (860)523-9632 or at for more information.
