Sure, this news is about a 10 days old, but it’s worth sharing on my extremely condensed weekly notes about NewsOK.com.

NewsOK is a finalist in the 2011 Online Journalism Awards, the annual awards from the Online News Association.

We’ve been honored for our overall site in the General Excellence in Online Journalism category. The other finalists are CBC News (Canadian radio), the Las Vegas Sun (as in, Las Vegas, Nevada) and The Globe and Mail (Toronto).

I don’t know if we will win. We’ve been a finalist with the ONA before — just check out our awards page. It’s always an honor and validation of our efforts to be nominated.

We’ll start working on the speech this weekend.
