My undergraduate accolades continue to grow! I was notified by an old prof that Klipsun was awarded Best Student Magazine 2005 by the Society of Professional Journalists Region 10. Further, Jamie Trudel won First Place Magazine Writing for "Two Men and a Baby," which was the center-spread story in the pictured issue (my first issue as Editor In Chief).
I'm going to take mucho credit for this award. Thank you very much. Six Klipsun issues were produced in 2005. I was photo editor for the first issue. I was managing editor for the following two issues. I was Editor In Chief for the following two issues. And, okay, I didn't work on the final issue.
I'm quite stoked about the award, especially because we beat the other WWU magazine, Planet. It's squashed Klipsun for the better part of the last decade. Now Klipsun and Jamie are off to compete in the national competition. Woot!
