The College Media Association, the largest organization for student journalists in the country, announced its picks on Oct. 31 for best newspapers nationwide. Pima Community College’s Aztec Press took second place in its division.
The announcement came during the CMA’s 93rd annual National College Media Convention, held this year in Philadelphia from Oct. 29-Nov. 2. The convention gathers thousands of student journalists for workshops, keynote speeches from professional journalists, critiques and other events in addition to the award declarations.
The Organization Pinnacle Awards given out at the convention acknowledge the best college newspapers, broadcast stations, websites and magazines for the past two semesters. Aztec Press was named runner-up for Newspaper of the Year in the “Two Year, Less Than Weekly” category.
El Don, Santa Ana College’s paper, took home first place in the division and Wingspan, Laramie County College’s publication, took third. It was the first time Aztec Press has been recognized by the organization.
