It was a good weekend for Missouri College Media Association schools at the Associated Collegiate Press Best of the Midwest convention in Minneapolis.
And it was fun to see the list of winners. Among those recognized were two of my former students and journalists from my alma mater, Park University. But the big winner among MCMA papers was The Journal at Webster University.
The Journal garnered 10 awards including a third-place finish in the Best of Show category.
Gabi Markovich and Jordan Larimore, two of my former students at Missouri Southern State University, took fourth and fifth respectively in Editorial/Commentary.
Staff members of The Stylus at Park brought home awards in the News Story and Sports Story categories.
Congrats to these Missouri college journalists. Way to go!
