RaiderView wins 11 KIPAC press awards
By Duane Bonifer
News from Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, KY - Members of RaiderView, the Lindsey Wilson College student newspaper, recently won 11 awards in statewide competition at the annual Kentucky Intercollegiate Press Association Conference, held in Lexington, KY.
"The students work long hours to produce the newspaper, so I think the awards help to validate their efforts," said David Goguen, associate professor of journalism and RaiderView adviser. "The current staff is a dedicated core of students and one of the most selfless staffs I've ever worked with."
RaiderView Editor Mary Beth Jewell, a senior from Canmer, Ky., took second place in the on-demand copy-editing competition. She also received a first-place award for sports page layout and a third-place award for a personality profile.
Leslie Moore, RaiderView features editor and a sophomore from Campbellsville, Ky., won second place in the on-demand news writing competition. She also won a second-place award in the personality profile category.
The on-demand competition features the state's best student journalists in competition against each other, Goguen said. Winners receive a monetary award.
"I've often felt that the on-demand writing and editing competition is the best way to judge raw journalistic talent," Goguen said. "The work is judged anonymously, and there's no editor or adviser who can influence the work. It's just a straight-forward contest."
Placing among the best in on-demand competition is becoming a tradition for LWC student-journalists. Last year, LWC senior Kyrie Gialdini captured a first-place award in the copy-editing contest.
"Because we're a small school, we're able to provide more attention to our student journalists," Goguen said. "We're able to work together to develop potential and help them realize their goals."
In other competition, winners included:
