JACKSON, Tenn. – Oct. 26, 2007– Union University journalism students won 11 awards at the Baptist Press Collegiate Journalism Conference Oct. 11-13 in Nashville, Tenn.
“Our students have worked very hard to produce a quality student newspaper and the many writing and photography awards won during the competition is validation from others that their work as been of the highest quality,” said Union journalism professor Michael Chute.
“While they publish the Cardinal & Cream to provide the Union community with the best newspaper they can -- not to win awards -- it is definitely rewarding to have professionals in the field, who judged the competition, to confirm that the staff is producing an excellent newspaper.”
Those winning awards were:
In addition, Brittany Howerton served on the four-member Student Advisory Panel as part of the conference, photography professor Jim Veneman coordinated the photojournalism sessions and Chute led a session on coach writers and critiqued the yearbook entries.
