Congratulations to the Et Cetera student media team for winning two Pacemaker Awards at October’s National College Media Convention, one for its print newspaper and one for the paper’s website.
This year’s awards bring The Et Cetera’s Pacemaker count to six: 2011, 2015, 2017 and 2020 for the newspaper and 2019 and 2020 for the website.
Students on staff collected 19 awards from the Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) and the College Media Association. The Pacemaker, awarded by ACP, is considered the Pulitzer Prize of college journalism.
These students compete head-to-head with college journalists across the country. In the individual award categories, no distinction is made between students at two-year and four-year schools.
