In other news … Lauren wins something finally

Other than this (which was possibly the most exciting news of my two-years-out-of-college career), I don’t usually win stuff.

Especially things involving writing that are … well … somewhat subjective in nature.

So I was pleasantly surprised this morning to discover I had won a Pennsylvania Associated Press Managing Editors Award for second place in feature writing.


I won for this story about the so-called boomerang generation — a growing group of 20-somethings moving back home to live with mom and dad.

Awards will be presented June 1 at PAPME’s annual convention in Gettysburg.

Congrats to all the other winners!

This story involved hanging out with people my age and their 'rents. Here's Katlyn Wolfgang, a high school art teacher, eating dinner with her parents. She was 25 at the time of this photo. © 2011 York Daily Record/Sunday News -- Kate Penn
