one more for the Ithacan

The Society of Professional Journalists named The Ithacan be Best Non-Daily Newspaper in the Northeast region for 2009. (Dailies and non-dailies are separate categories for SPJ.)

The paper received the First Place Mark of Excellence Award at the SPJ's Region 1 spring conference at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in New York. It now goes on to compete against the winners in the other 11 SPJ regions for the national Mark of Excellence award, which will be announced at SPJ's national conference October 3–5 in Las Vegas. This is the third year in a row The Ithacan has been named best in the Northeast by SPJ, and two years ago it was ranked number two in the country.

In addition, the following students received awards for work published in The Ithacan in 2009:
Allison Wassink ”09: Second place, sports photography
Andy Swift ’09: Third place, feature story
Allison Usavage ’11: Third place, photo illustration

Clearly, we're THE student newspaper on the planet. Congrats to Michael Serino, their advisor, and to all the staff.
