Signal Takes Home Top Honors at National College Media Convention

The Associated Collegiate Press awards paper with “Best of Show” award in its largest category

CHICAGO — Beating out dozens of other major papers from around the country, The Signal was recognized by the Associated Collegiate Press Nov. 4 as the best student newspaper in its division at the 2012 National College Media Convention.

Competing in the ACP’s largest category, four-year weekly tabloid, the independent student paper at Georgia State University was evaluated on its most recent issue covering the election and was graded for its design, photography, writing and overall presentation by top college media advisors.

The paper also took home the 9th place award for the Best in Show — Special Edition for its Sept. 25 pullout edition highlighting its 2012 Modern Media Conference, the largest college media conference in the Southeast featuring more than 25 top national and regional media personalities.

“Winning these awards is a huge honor for the paper and validates everything we’ve been working towards over the past few years,” said Sabastian Wee, editor-in-chief, who led the paper’s 2012 redesign.

“It wouldn’t be possible without the handwork and dedication of our staff, who help put the paper the paper together week in and week out.”
