Eastern Christian received recognition for excellence in student journalism during the 62nd annual Journalism Day contest, sponsored by Ball State University in Indiana. This year, more than 500 entries were received from around the nation across multiple, journalism-related categories.
The EC Times, Eastern Christian’s student-written newspaper, advised by Mrs. Leah Genuario, clinched the highest award of all entries in the division A “newspaper overall” category. The award was based on an evaluation of two issues produced by the first semester journalism class.
Individually, junior Zoe Schafer took home two awards of excellence in the feature story and personality feature story categories. Sophomores Anna Kinz and Claudia Antoci both received honorable mentions in the personality feature story category. Congratulations to all winners!
