The Vermont Cynic earns a national prize—again!

November 1, 2010

UVM’s own Vermont Cynic placed as one of the top weekly university tabloid newspapers at the National College Media Convention’s Best of Show competition yesterday in Louisville, Ky.

Cynic News Editor Natalie DiBlasio, who attended the conference with photo editor Kruti Kansara and layout editor Amanda Hayward, notified the Cynic staff by e-mail about an hour after the results were announced in Kentucky.  Her brief missive: “Check it out guys! Sixth place! Go Cynic.”

This is the second time in three years that the Cynic has placed in the competition, which draws entries from around the country. The contest was judged by  national judges and working journalists on criteria ranging from news value to photography to leadership, officials said.

The convention, which draws thousands of student journalists, is the largest annual gathering of college media in the country. It is sponsored by College Media Advisers, Associated Collegiate Press and Collegiate Broadcasters, Inc.
