Students in the journalism and graphic communication programs recently won a total of 15 awards — including five first-place awards — from the Journalism Association of Community Colleges and the Society of Professional Journalists for excellence in producing issues of the Express newspaper and Mainline magazine in 2011.

The awards were earned for entries into both organizations’ annual competitions.

The print edition of the Express newspaper and the Mainline magazine won general excellence awards, acknowledgement of overall and steady excellence in each publication throughout the year.

Five City College students won first-place awards, four students won second-place awards and an editorial from the Express staff won a fourth-place award from the statewide JACC mail-in competition, which includes nearly 100 community college journalism programs across the state. There were also three honorable mentions.

From the Society of Professional Journalists, whose competition took in 4,000 entries from California, Arizona, Nevada and Hawaii La Tisha Clayton won a first-place award for online news reporting on the Sacramento Occupy movement. Another student won a second-place award.

Check out the April 17 print issue of the Express for a full story on the winners and the competition.
