The University of Michigan-Flint student newspaper was a big winner at a recent major newspaper contest. Student journalists from across the state competed in the Michigan Press Association College Newspaper contest, giving them the chance to gain recognition for their best work.
The contest was open to student newspaper members of Michigan Press Association, and was cosponsored by the Michigan Collegiate Press Association, an association composed of advisers to the MPA student newspaper members.
The newspapers competed in one of three divisions: Division I (newspapers publishing more than weekly) – Division II (newspapers publishing weekly) – Division III (two-year college publications or schools publishing less than weekly). Entries included editorial content, design, photos, general excellence, advertising sections as well as online editions.
The Michigan Times received nine awards:
1st Place: Mike Stechschulte "Body of Missing Flint Man Found"
1st Place: Doug Snyder "SGC Displays Conflicts of Interest"
