The Associated Collegiate Press has announced their selections for the 2013 Pacemaker awards, and Scribendi has prevailed! Our 2013 edition was deemed worthy of the highest award in student journalism, often likened to the Pulitzer. This is one of the greatest honors we can receive, and we’re grateful and excited to accept.

Pacemaker candidates were judged based on content; quality of writing and editing; photography, art and graphics; layout and design; and overall concept or theme. Take a look at the list of winners here, and the ACP’s press release here.

This isn’t the first time we’ve come so high: our 2006 edition also won a Pacemaker. It’s gratifying to know that we’re keeping up our exceptionality. Congratulations to last year’s staff, editor in chief Austin Evans, managing editor Amy Sullivan, digital editor Sara Crespin, and Amaris Ketcham, who brought her first year as faculty advisor to a momentous conclusion.

This is to say: thank you, and we hope to do you proud.
