The Online News Association has announced finalists for the 8th annual Online Journalism Awards, honoring excellence in digital journalism.
The five finalists in the Student Journalism category are:
San Francisco State University
University of North Carolina Chapel Hill
University of Arizona
University of Nevada, Reno
The Science of Sex
From what I can see, none of the finalist projects were produced by college newspapers, although Border Beat is a student-run online magazine. Most were produced by classes or groups of students working together.

The finalists were chosen by a team of distinguished journalists from more than 700 entries in 20 categories during a two-day event on the University of Southern California campus Sept. 7 and 8.
Winners will be announced at the OJA banquet during the 8th annual conference of the Online News Association (ONA), Oct. 18 at the Sheraton Centre, Toronto.
