Ithacan Named Best in the Country

The Society of Professional Journalists has named The Ithacan the Best Non-Daily Newspaper in the Country in its annual Mark of Excellence Awards competition.
The award is for calendar year 2011 (Spring editor in chief Libby Sile ’11; Fall editor in chief Aaron Edwards ’12). Papers submitted issues on or near three dates specified by SPJ. This year’s issues submitted were published on March 3, October 6 and December 1, 2011. The Ithacan won First Place in SPJ’s Northeast Region in March, and then went on to compete against the winners in SPJ’s other 11 regions for the national award.
The award will be presented at SPJ’s national convention in September in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. SPJ is the largest professional organization of journalists in the country.
Congratulations to all the editors and staffers who made this the most successful year in the paper’s history.
