OK, people. We are within six days of the deadline for all nominations for the Paper Trail end-of-year awards. We started the process last week, and this post serves as your reminder. If you don't make nominations, you won't be able to vote for that candidate.
We're looking for nominations and candidates for four awards: Story of the Year, Newsmaker of the Year, Nonstory of the Year, and Alternative Media Outlet of the Year. Last year was the year of Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, rising tuition, and blogs. Has 2009 been much different? Send us your picks, and we'll set up polls so that everyone can vote.
