Brennan Crowder, Sam Cushing, Dora Totoian and Maddie Pfeiffer accept the Silver Crown Award from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association in New York during 2019 Spring Break.

The Beacon’s work has been recognized recently by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA), the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) and the College Media Association (CMA).

The CSPA awarded the Beacon a Silver Crown Award for general excellence during the 2017-18 publishing year. A delegation of Beacon staffers received the plaque in New York City during the annual spring College Media Association conference.

At that conference, The Beacon received Second Place for “News Delivery” for its comprehensive coverage (including social media) of last fall’s campus protest against Fr. Paul Scalia.

Finally, we just received word that The Beacon is a regional finalist (or winner) in several categories of the SPJ Mark of Excellence Awards. We are in Region 10, which encompasses Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Alaska. The list of honored students and their work is below.
