Welcome to the 2014 Bruins Nation Awards Winners Ceremony. Well, more of a post than a ceremony, but you get the idea.
Thank you to everyone who wrote fanposts and fanshots and commented on Bruins Nation over the past year. This site is all about the community, and JoeBruin15 and I are committed to making that even more so in 2015 and beyond. In that sense, these awards are a thank you to everyone who makes this place home. I encourage everyone to continue to write over the coming year and keep this place the best U.C.L.A. blog in the Internets.
Congratulations and thank you to all of our nominees. The votes have been counted and it's now it is time to name the winners.
First, in the category of Best writing, the Benny goes to...
yumes: Growing Up Bruin
yumes wins a Benny on a first ever fanpost. Not bad for someone who joined BN last October!
Next, in the category of Best Comedy, the Benny goes to...
Make it a pair of Bennies! Two BN legends tie and will share the award this year (but each gets a bear)
Finally, in our third annual EditorsChoice Award for Outstanding Contribution to Bruins Nation, the winner is...Bruinette88.
Bruinette88 had more comments and more fanposts than any other BN community member in 2014, and she was fantastic at covering many of the Olympic sports. Bruinette will receive a copy of the 2015 Vintage UCLA Football Calendar for her invaluable efforts for BN.
Congratulations to all our nominees and our 2014 winners. Now let's look forward to an even better 2015 on Bruins Nation.
