Beating out dozens of other major papers from around the country, The Signal was recognized by the Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) Nov. 4 as the best student newspaper in its division at the National College Media Convention.
The independent student newspaper at Georgia State University competed in the ACP's largest division, four-year weekly tabloid. The paper 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 advisers.
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. "It wouldn't be possible without the hard work and dedication of our staff, who help put the paper together week in and week out."
