We asked, and you delivered.
We recently ran a story on wrapping paper — specifically how most is not recyclable and newsprint is a better recycling choice — and asked readers to show us their gifts wrapped in our specially designed News&Guide wrap.
Below we highlight three submissions, each of which brought something unique to the present wrapping game.
We couldn’t pick just one, so all three will receive a 2020 print-plus subscription, 2020 News&Guide calendar and a $25 Persephone gift card. Thanks for keeping the holidays green and bright with the News&Guide.

Award: Love local news(print)
Maria Rachal wrote us with her submission photo saying she was “so excited to use your special wrapping paper print in the newspaper.”
Judges comments: We love anyone who is as excited about newsprint as we are ... and we never tire of a Teton view. Thanks for your submission.
Award: Black, white and re(a)d all over
Judy Johnson is a long-time recyclable wrapper, having used newsprint for “all my gifts about 30 years ago, tying them with wide red ribbon. It was a hit.” This year she again turned to the News&Guide for wrap, using more than just our specially designed sheet for her packages.
Judges comments: Black and white and re(a)d all over? Yes, please.
Award: Best in bow
Cynthia Wiley submitted photos of her creatively wrapped packages that also featured elegantly designed bows made of newsprint.
Judges comments: A completely recyclable package? You had us at bow.
