NIC student newspaper places 4th with 4-year schools

Even though North Idaho College is a two-year school, its student newspaper, The Sentinel, took fourth-place for Best Four-Year Newspaper in the Best of Show contest at the annual Associated Collegiate Press and Collegiate Media Association media convention in New Orleans on Oct. 26. Due to a clerical error, The Sentinel competed against four-year schools.

The ACP awarded NIC student Connor Coughlin, of Coeur d’Alene an honorable mention for editorial cartooning. The Sentinel was also named as an ACP Newspaper Pacemaker finalist. The ACP Newspaper Pacemaker contest has awarded general excellence in collegiate newspapers for 86 years and entries were judged by the staff at the Miami Herald this year.
