The Skyline View Wins Awards at NorCal Conference

September 27, 2013

JACC NorCal 2013 Group PhotoOne of the best parts of being an adviser to The Skyline View is taking the students to conferences.  These conferences provide students a larger perspective on journalism, a clearer path to a journalism career, and specific training from generous professionals in the field who take time out of their busy lives to mentor our students.

And then there are the competitions.

While merely entering a contest is a win from the adviser’s standpoint–after all, the contests simulate the stress of writing on deadline while trying to do better than your colleagues, things we are trying to prepare the students to do–it also is nice to win.  Again, not the point, but when it happens, it feels good.

It felt good.

The Skyline View took home General Excellence for Online Journalism at the Journalism Association of Community Colleges NorCal Conference at Sac State on Sept. 21.  Rommel Conclara won third place for Video Journalism and first place, along with Alana VanZanten, for Web/Broadcast Journalism.  Kenny Martin picked up third place for Online Photo Story, and Justine Abellana clinched first place for Critical Review.
