Oregon Collegiate Newspaper Contest gives locals first-place prizes for general writing, sports writing and feature photos

Student journalists at Clackamas Community College won 15 journalism awards in the recent 2019 Oregon Collegiate Newspaper Contest. Among the awards were first-place prizes for general writing, sports writing and feature photos.

Clackamas Print student journalists won awards in the two-year school category for their website, review writing, headline writing, sports photography and column writing. The awards were presented by the Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association at the annual Collegiate Day held April 26 at Linn-Benton Community College in Albany.

Devon Banks plays basketball for Clackamas Community College and created the Make Them Respect You clothing line. The photo by Jonathan Villagomez ran on the cover of The Clackamas Print on Nov. 28, 2018, and won third place for feature photo among two-year colleges in Oregon."The pride I feel for The Print is unmatched," said Victoria Durling, a Clackamas student and editor-in-chief of The Clackamas Print. "There have been times in this last year that our section editors have written all the content in their own sections because others were off on other assignments. That grit, and the level of dedication, love and support I've found in The Clackamas Print is unmatched. I believe these qualities are what brought us 15 awards this year."

Student editors can qualify for free tuition at Clackamas for the work they do on The Print. Journalism students have interned for Martha Stewart Living, Nike, the Clackamas Review, the Oregonian, John Canzano's radio show and Willamette Week. The current managing editor of the Portland Tribune, Dana Haynes, formerly served as editor-in-chief of The Print.
