Three students placed in the live contests, in which they competed against student journalists from two-year and four-year schools across the state. The other awards are for work published in 2016.

If you know these students, please congratulate them. They work incredibly hard! Their awards continue to grow, as does the team. Students interested in writing, artwork, photography or design, can visit The Et Cetera office, N-240.
