So we didn’t win a Pacemaker. But we just found out today that our paper won Best in Show for a four-year non-daily newspaper as well as Best in Show for our website!
We were all pretty disappointed last night, but it was great to get the good news this morning, via a hash tag on Twitter while sitting in the Philadelphia airport waiting to get back to Elon. A great end to a great weekend!
I’m so excited that we won two awesome awards, but like Colin told us last night, we were already winners, as cheesy as that sounds. We’re lucky to have a solid staff of hard-working, dedicated and passionate students that work so hard week in and week out to produce a great product. Winning Best in Show is further proof that we’re doing an incredible job.
We all learned so much this weekend and we can’t wait to get back and share all of the information and tips with the whole staff. Get ready for a long budget meeting this Wednesday, kids. But I promise it will be worth it.
