LACC Collegian Nominated for Sports
Story of the Year

Los Angeles City College will compete with students from the University of Kentucky at Lexington, the College of William and Mary, the University of Oregon at Eugene, and Indiana University at Bloomington for top honors for Sports Story of the Year in the 2009 Associated Collegiate Press Contest.

The American Society of Newspaper Editors co-sponsored the competition, and selected a story that ran in the May issue of the Collegian headlined Paper Trail May Lead to Problems for Menšs Basketball, by Mars Melnicoff.

Places for each of the finalist schools will be announced next month in Austin, Texas at ACPšs Annual National College Media Convention. ACP states that judges looked for several components in finalists stories, including initiative and original reporting of a situation, problem or issue affecting students. Judges also looked for stories that demonstrated leadership, sensitivity, strong writing and fairness.

There is no separation between two-year and four-year colleges in the story of the year category. City College won two ACP National Awards last year (the first time in 38 years).
