Olivet College's student newspaper receives honors
Oct 28, 2009

Journalists for the Olivet College student newspaper, The Echo, won three Division III school awards in the 2009 Michigan Press Association (MPA) College Editorial Contest in Lansing. The Echo received one first-place and one second-place award, and an honorable mention.

The top honor was awarded to the newspaper staff for an editorial titled, Why Isnt It Date Rape. The second-place award was given to Brandon Townsel, a sophomore from Flint, for his sports photo from a wrestling competition. Nicole Babcock, a 2009 graduate from Three Rivers, received an honorable mention for her editorial critiquing the college dress code for athletics.

The contest was open to student newspaper members of the MPA and was cosponsored by the Michigan Collegiate Press Association, an organization composed of advisers to MPA student newspaper members. The newspapers competed in one of three divisions, including: Division I (papers published more than weekly); Division II (papers published weekly); and Division III (two-year college publications or schools publishing less than weekly). Entries included editorial content, design, photos, general excellence, advertising sections and online editions.

The Echo has received 13 awards in the past three years from the MPA.
