68 newspapers registered for the contests

There’s still time today to register, and with a few doing so this morning, the current number of 68 newspapers could change by mid-afternoon. The 68, as of 11 a.m., are listed at the end of this On Second Thought segment

Anyway, that’s the number of newspapers registered to enter one or both KPA contests this morning. And today is the deadline to get registered. And to submit entries. We’ve only been preaching/pleading/begging you to do that since August¬† 5. And after 5 p.m. today, it’s too late to get registered.

And where does 68 newspapers registered rank in the history of KPA contests? Well, I can’t tell you for sure but the next lowest number is 78 back in the early 2011. The 68 and 78 are a far cry from the boon days of the early 2000s when 102 and 105 newspapers entered in back to back years.

We won’t have a total number of entries until after the system is shutdown to get ready for newspapers from the Maine Press Association to begin the judging process.

The numbers will keep growing throughout the day with a lot of newspapers still in the entry upload process but as of 11 a.m. Eastern today, we had 2,491 entries and $17,437 in contest fees.

Keep ’em coming!!!
