Legacy Wins 15 MCMA Awards in Inaugural Year

April 16, 2008

After just its first year in existence, Lindenwood University’s college newspaper, the Legacy, has won 15 awards from the Missouri College Media Association. The awards were presented in Joplin April 12 during the annual MCMA meeting.

The Legacy competed in Division Two, the second largest division, against Northwest Missouri State, Truman, Missouri Southern, Missouri Western, Webster and Southeast Missouri State universities.

Legacy staff won first place awards in Regular Column, Entertainment Cartoon, and Advertising Layout. Their second place awards were for Regular Column, Political Cartoon, and Feature Page. Third place awards were for Story Illustration, Editorial Page, and Photo Page. Honorable mention was awarded for Editorial Writing, Entertainment Cartoon, Story Illustration, Special Section, and Sweepstakes, which recognizes papers that received the largest number of points overall.

Tom Pettit, faculty moderator of the Legacy, said the awards should help the fledgling paper build its reputation and also provides encouragement for the reporters and editors to continue developing their skills.

“Interest and response from those we serve, our Lindenwood readers, has been our primary goal,” Pettit said, “and honors from their student journalist peers adds another layer of confirmation of a job well done.”
