The contest named the DP a "National Pacemaker," along with the University of California-Los Angeles' Daily Bruin and Michigan State University's The State News. The contest does not rank the top three papers in order. The competition was judged by the editors of the Washington Post. The award, announced last week, came several weeks after a separate organization, the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, gave its highest honor to the DP. "It's one of the biggest awards we've ever gotten," said Brent Mitchell, the DP 's executive editor. "And it's especially great since most of our competitors at this level are from huge state schools with journalism departments," the College senior said.Comments powered by Disqus
