Over the weekend, The Beacon won First Place for Editorial Writing in the Mark of Excellence Awards sponsored by the Society for Professional Journalists (SPJ), Region 10, which includes colleges in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Alaska.
Mark of Excellence Awards aim to recognize the best in college journalism.
Congratulations to Opinions Editor Caitlin Yilek and the entire Beacon editorial board!
Winning First Place makes The Beacon eligible to compete in the national Mark of Excellence Awards, which will be presented at a conference in Fort Lauderdale, Fla in September. (Cait, you should totally go! )
