Columbia College’s newspaper, The PostScript, won third place in the 2016 South Carolina Press Association Collegiate Contest.

The PostScript received an award in the “Series of Articles” category for four articles about a racially charged event that occurred in Fall 2016. The articles covered various topics and opinions surrounding the events, such as diversity and social media.

The first article, “We are Columbia College; united we stand,” by Kamayah Porter, alumna of Columbia College and former editor, reported the events, thoughts and plans of action of the faculty and staff on campus. The article also featured photos of the students, who protested for change after the event, taken by Melvonia Taylor, sophomore writing for print and digital media major, co-editor and photographer for the paper.

The second article, “Columbia College students react to offensive social media post,” was written by Kara Anderson, a senior writing for print and digital media major, staff writer and photographer for the paper. Anderson’s article covered reactions of students who attended a forum hosted by the Office of Multicultural Affairs.

The third article was written by Taylor and Sabrina Stevens, a junior writing for print and digital media major and staff writer for the paper. “Masked students leave campus voluntarily” features accounts by students and their opinions of what the consequences for the students involved should be.

“Personal testimonies from CC students open conversations on campus” is the final article in the winning series. This article, written by Megan Robinson, senior writing for print and digital media major and current co-editor for the paper, covers more of the students’ response to the events and its results on campus.

Bryn Blumenthal, a former member of the paper’s staff, coordinated the submissions for the competition. Professor Emily S. Ward is the faculty advisor for The PostScript. Columbia College and the student reporters will be recognised and presented the award in April at the Press Association Awards Ceremony at Francis Marion University in Florence, South Carolina.
