We're Pacemaker Finalists Again

The Ithacan has once again been named a finalist for one of the top journalism awards in the country. This week the Associated Collegiate Press named the paper a finalist for its Pacemaker Award — an honor widely regarded as "the Pulitzer Prize of college journalism."
The nomination is for papers produced during the 2005–06 academic year. The editor in chief during that period was Elizabeth Quill ’06.
The paper’s website is also a finalist for the Online Pacemaker award. Winners will be announced during the 85th annual National College Media Convention October 25-29 in St. Louis.
The paper won the Pacemaker for the third time last year, and has been a finalist four times in the last five years.
