We lobbied for your vote for Zack Harold to go to the Online News Association annual conference.
And guess what! He gets to go!
Zack is one of five journalists nationwide to receive a scholarship from Digital First Media for his registration fee and hotel for the conference in Atlanta.
The conference has cool stuff like lessons in data journalism, tech trends for journalists and a keynote speech by ol’ Mr. Presidential Forecaster Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com.
He was one of 20 finalists already, but he needed our votes to win.
So thank you!

I promise you, gentle reader, that this blog will not always be about Zack Harold.
But I do appreciate that the Daily mail politics writer is giving me fodder — and another reason to be excited.

He’d love to go.

Zack is among 20 journalists from across the country being considered for a scholarship to the convention.
Here’s the catch: only the 5 who get the most votes and support will win an ONA13 pass and hotel room for the conference.
And, West Virginians, YOU can help!

Anyone can vote.
Finalists are encouraged to campaign in their newsrooms and on social media for themselves as loudly or as quietly as they see fit. The five to garner the most support will be our five winners.
Lest you need a reminder, West Virginians came through for the pepperoni roll in a national contest just a few months ago.
Let’s do the same for Zack — West Virginian, good guy and deserving journalist.
The polls will close Friday, July 19, at 8 p.m. (ET).
