Chronicle Once Again Named Among Top College Newspapers in State

For the fourth year in a row, The Columbia Chronicle was named the state’s top student newspaper among non-daily college papers with a circulation above 4,000. The General Excellence Award was one of 11 first-place honors The Chronicle won at the annual Illinois College Press Association convention competition held in Chicago on February 18 and 19.

In all, the Chronicle brought home its largest number of awards ever from the ICPA – 32 – in competition against other college papers. The awards recognize the service and dedication of not only journalism majors who work for or contribute to the Chronicle, but also students from the photography, marketing communication, interactive media, film and art & design departments who participate in the production, design and marketing of the newspaper and its online editions.

The ICPA news comes on the heels of the Chronicle being named for the second year in a row for a Pacemaker award. The Chronicle was one of 10 college papers selected to receive the Associated Collegiate Press Pacemaker award for a non-daily college paper published at a four-year university. More than 200 college papers entered this competition.
