CALL FOR ENTRIES: The 1st UST National Campus Journalism Awards

The 1st UST National Campus Journalism Awards (UNCJA) will honor outstanding works in journalism at the university or college level in three categories: (1) Best In-Depth News, (2) Best Feature and (3) Best Editorial.

The UNCJA is supported by a grant from retired Washington-based labor lawyer Julio Macaranas Jr., a two-time editor in chief of The Varsitarian, the 87-year-old official student publication of the University of Santo Tomas. Macaranas established the awards in honor of his late mother, Mercedes, who taught him how to write.

The awards will be given out during "Inkblots," the annual national campus journalism fellowship and conference established by The Varsitarian in 1999. read more »
