Bri Nellis Wins National Publication Award For Second Year In A Row (04/30/13)
Clarion Sports Zone is pleased to announce that Bri Nellis, a major photo contributor to our site, has won the National High School Sports Publication Awards (NHSSPA) Gold Award for the second year in a row. The Gold Award is the highest award in each category. There is only one Gold Award winner in each category. The NHSSPA also awards Silver and Bronze and Merit awards for each category, as well as a Grand Prize winner for the top publication in all categories combined.
Bri’s award winning publication is “Clarion Football: The Boys of Fall.” The hardcover, full color book, complete with a full color dust jacket, chronicles the Bobcats 2012 football season. It features photos by Bri and other area sports photographers including Dave Hartley, Cindy Nellis and Eric Elliot and stories from area sportswriters.
This book is of such professional quality, you’d think it was done by a major publishing house.
“CLARION FOOTBALL: The Boys of Fall” follows on the heels of Bri’s Gold Award winning publication from last year, “CLARION FOOTBALL: One Team – One Goal.”
The NHSSPA presents the awards to recognize individuals involved with high school sports publications (sports programs, media guides etc.).

Bri, the daughter of Ken and Cindy Nellis of Clarion, is a 2012 graduate of Clarion High School and a student at CUP.
