Texas Tech student campus newspaper, The Daily Toreador, received 13 honors in the 2011 Gold Circle competition sponsored by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA). The CSPA sponsors annual contests to seek out and publicize the best practices in student writing, editing and publishing.
According to the Columbia University website, The Gold Circle Awards honor the best work completed by student reporters, editors, designers, photographers, artists, poets, fiction writers and other student staff members.
Susan Peterson, managing director of student media, said she is proud of the dedication the students show in the newsroom every class day.
“The students made improving local coverage and design a priority last year and it paid off,” she said. “Any time you can win this many awards against the best college media programs in the country, it’s a huge accomplishment.”
