AACC’s Campus Current newspaper staff visited the San Diego area for a college journalism convention in early March and left with two awards.

The student newspaper won second place for Best of Show Award among two-year college newspapers, and third place for its website, which updates news stories daily.

The Associated Collegiate Press/College Media Business and Advertising Managers National College Journalism Convention took place from Feb. 28 to March 3 in La Jolla, California. Seven Campus Current editors attended.

The Associated Collegiate Press based its choice of Best of Show finalists from four-year and two-year colleges on outstanding coverage of the news, quality of writing, leadership, design, photography and graphics.

“I think our team is really dedicated to what we do and it was a proud moment for everybody because we know it’s not just one person’s award,” Campus Current Editor-in-Chief Alexandra Radovic, a third-year elementary education and journalism student, said.
