Daily News wins SPJ awards

The Ball State Daily News won first place in editorial writing and general column writing in this year’s regional Mark of Excellence Awards from the Society of Professional Journalists.

The Editorial Writing award went to Rhett Umphress, Benjamin Dashley and Sarah Boswell. Benjamin Dashley won first place in General Column Writing.

Other staffers winning awards included Dylan Buell for photography and Daniel Sipocz for in-depth reporting.

Those were among nine Daily News awards in the contest, which honors the best collegiate journalism in the U.S. and this year included more than 4,000 entries in the group’s 12 regions.

SPJ announced the Region 5 winners covering Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky, on Saturday at its spring conference at the Marriott Downtown in Indianapolis.

The first-place winners advance to the national competition round, where winners will be announced in late April.
