Lisa Drew's students win top honors - from New York to Alaska!

New journalism professor Lisa Drew has more reason than most people to pay attention to this year's national college media competition sponsored by the Society of Professional Journalists.

SPJ sponsors one of the most prestigious media competitions in the country each year, and hundreds of schools enter the work of their best and brightest students.

But Lisa may be the only faculty member in the 50 states who may find her students competing against....her students.

Lisa's students at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks took first place in their regional competition with work they completed in her digital journalism course in the spring of 2006.

Her students in the Park School are finalists in our regional competition for work they completed in her digital journalism course in the fall of 2006.

If we take first place in our region, Lisa's students in Alaska will compete against Lisa's students in Ithaca to take the top honor nationally.

(We know she'd be rooting for her Parkies...)

Hi Diane,
This is a somewhat bizarre but really cool situation; and just the type, I was thinking, that NPR would probably pick up on.

do you think you could get frank warren to come to ic? i think it would be a cool expression of art / parkie related stuff to have the postcards displayed here, plus my dorm (boothroyd hall) just started up our own "boothroyd confidential."

i think it would be great!!

Frank Warren speaking here would be AMAZING! I make and send in postcards all the time...

Dean Lynch, he does remarkable things. Parkies could learn a lot from him.
