Daily News wins online Gold Crown

The Ball State Daily News has won a Gold Crown Award, the highest prize for overall excellence from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, for its online operation,

The CSPA competition included 182 digital publications. Eight Gold Crowns were awarded, and 30 publications received the second-highest award, the Silver Crown.

The student newspaper's digital operation includes stories and photos from its print edition, online-only content and updates throughout the day and on weekends. Sports writers and other staffers produce streaming video programming, and a social media unit supports Twitter feeds and Facebook updates with breaking news.

Last month the Daily News digital operation won 37 online news awards in the association’s annual Gold Circle competition, including first-place for sports, informational graphics, video feature package and humor writing.

CSPA is an international student media association operated by Columbia University since 1925. The latest awards were presented in New York on Sunday.
