Online News Association announces finalists

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

Atacama Stories
University of North Carolina Chapel Hill

Border Beat
University of Arizona

Our Tahoe
University of Nevada, Reno

The Science of Sex
Columbia University

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.

Click here for a complete list of the 70 finalists. These are great examples to show your college media staffs what can be done with online media.

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.
