The Western Publishing Association (WPA) named School Transportation News magazine one of five finalists for the 63rd Annual MAGGIE Awards that recognizes excellence among publishing and media professionals.
The monthly publication covering the national student transportation and school bus industries is up for Best Trade Magazine in the categories of business, finance, management and retail. The winner will be announced during an awards banquet on May 2 at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel at Los Angeles International Airport.

WPA said it believes recognition is the best way to honor achievement. For more than 60 years, it has bestowed awards of excellence to deserving individuals and companies whose work is deemed "The Best in the West" in a wide variety of publishing categories.
