Student Magazine Contest 2013
The 2013 competition attracted 282 entries from 30 universities in the United States and Canada. That is more entries and more universities than we've ever had. Judges for the contest, which included 13 categories, were publishers, editors, and writers for consumer and specialized business magazines.
Here is a PDF of the winning entries. The judges' comments on those entries are always insightful and instructive. Some of the contest judges re-up every year because they enjoy seeing the work your students do. They volunteer their time. We are extremely grateful to them for their effort and for contributing to our educational mission.
First place winners received checks for $100. All other winners received certificates.
Many thanks to Carol Holstead for organizing the Student Magazine Contest again this year!
A question from Donna Harrington-Lueker about student magazines prompted a number of responses on the Magazine Division listserv. A list of student magazines has been added to this site. If you would like to add a student magazine, please send the link and a brief description to Carol Schwalbe.
