The Society of Professional Journalists has announced the national winners of the 2007 Mark of Excellence Awards. This year, collegiate journalists submitted more than 3,400 entries in 39 categories.
“I encourage media executives who are looking for the next wave of high-quality journalists to pay attention to the winners of SPJ’s Mark of Excellence Awards,” Neil Ralston, SPJ’s vice president for campus chapter affairs, said in a news release. “These young men and women represent some of the best that journalism programs have to offer, and we’re proud to be able to honor them at the national level.”
National winners were previously recognized by receiving first place in one of the Society’s 12 regional competitions. A complete list of winners and finalists can be found here.
National winners and finalists will be recognized Friday Sept. 5 at the Mark of Excellence Luncheon, during the 2008 SPJ Convention & National Journalism Conference at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.
