Ithacan Wins Gold Crown Awards

Ithacan editors are presented with two Gold Crown awards by C. Bruce
Watterson, chair of the CSPA judging committee.
The Ithacan has been a been presented with two Gold Crown awards by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association at the spring National College Media Convention in New York City. The Gold Crown awards are the highest honors presented by CSPA.

This year the CSPA offered different category options to entrants. Publications could enter in the traditional newspaper and online categories, or in a new third “hybrid” category, described as “a publication that works to combine their digital and print publications as one.” Since this reflects the goals of the Ithacan’s editors, the publication was entered in this category. The publication won Gold Crown awards in the hybrid category for both the Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 semesters (Aaron Edwards ’12, editor in chief). The awards were presented in a ceremony on March 10 at the Sheraton Times Square Hotel.
