Ithacan Ranked as Gold Medalist

The Ithacan was recently named a gold medalist for the fall 2006 and spring 2007 semesters in the Columbia Scholastic Press Association's annual college newspaper critique.
Each year the CSPA evaluates member papers on overall content, news, depth reporting, features, opinion/editorial, sports, arts/entertainment, editing/headline writing, and design/graphics on the basis of more than 150 specific criteria.
This year the paper's scores on the critique's 1,000-point scale was a near-perfect 994 for fall and 994 for spring.
The judge commented: "Clearly you are producing a top-notch paper. For me, the most appealing part of your product is the variety of topics being covered. They vary from serious topics to amusing and inventive ones."
The Ithacan is consistently ranked as a gold medalist in the CSPA critique.
