CBU campus newspaper repeats first place in national competition
RIVERSIDE (March 3, 2014)—The Banner, campus newspaper of California Baptist University, repeated its first place award in the 2014 “Best of Show” awards at the National College Journalism Convention, Feb. 27–March 2 in San Diego, Calif. The publication, which entered the competition in the four-year, non-weekly newspaper category, also won first place in the 2013 awards.
Seven students from the CBU Journalism & Media and Public Relations program attended the annual convention hosted by Associated Collegiate Press.
“We are very proud of our talented students and their dedication to the campus publications,” said Dr. Michael Chute, professor of journalism and director of the journalism & media and public relations program. “While we don’t produce these publications to win awards, they are validation of the outstanding work our students are doing and the skills they are mastering in our journalism education program.”
During the conference, the students attended sessions presented by keynote speakers, workshops conducted by professional journalists and had The Banner critiqued by journalism professionals and college journalism advisers.
