Award Presentation in New York on March 12.
The Ithacan had a strong showing at the spring National College Media Convention in New York City, March 11–13. The paper was awarded the Columbia Scholastic Press Association Silver Crown for overall excellence for 2015–16 (Kira Maddox ’16, editor-in-chief), as well as the 2017 “Apple Award” for Best in Show in the newspaper category, presented by the College Media Association.
The Crown Award was in the “hybrid” category, which evaluates entries on the basis of the effectiveness with which they combine their print and online publications. The Best in Show Award was based on three issues of the paper submitted from the 2016–17 academic year (Kayla Dwyer ’17, editor-in-chief).
