BSU student paper wins national award

The Ball State Daily News has won the prestigious Pacemaker Award for general excellence from among more than 200 entries in a contest sponsored by Associated Collegiate Press.

The Daily News joins student papers from Yale, Michigan State, Minnesota, Kent State and the University of Oregon in the awards, announced Saturday at the 88th Annual National College Media Convention in Austin, Texas, sponsored by ACP and College Media Advisers.

Ball State was the only Indiana winner among the 228 entries from across the country. The contest was judged by the Poynter Institute.

Entries were judged on the basis of coverage, writing and reporting quality, in-depth reporting, layout and design, photography and graphics, and leadership on the opinion page.
