South Carolina Wildlife magazine recognized as 2010 Notable State Documents
South Carolina Wildlife magazine was one of several state government publications and websites recognized on March 16 during a ceremony at the South Carolina State Library as one of the most notable South Carolina state government documents of 2010.
Winning documents were selected by a group of state documents depository librarians from around the state and by staff at the South Carolina State Library from thousands of publications.
"In every issue, we try to keep our mandated mission firmly in mind – to help conserve our state’s natural resources and educate people as to the value of those resources," said David Lucas, editor of South Carolina Wildlife (SCW) magazine. "We remain committed to fulfilling that mission while producing a quality publication that generations of South Carolinians have been raised with."
The Notable Documents awards program was begun in 1991 to recognize exemplary documents published during the previous calendar year. The selection is announced annually on or near Freedom of Information Day, March 16, the birthday of President James Madison, an early proponent of citizen access to government information.
South Carolina Wildlife magazine, a showcase for the state's natural resources and outdoor recreation opportunities, earns respect among its peers and subscribers year after year. SCW has been published by the S.C. Department of Natural Resources continuously since 1954 and has for many become a part of our state's outdoor heritage.
