Northwest Student Media captures multiple national honors

Northwest Student Media captured eight Pinnacle awards at the 2018 Associated Collegiate Press / College Media Association Fall National Media Convention in Louisville, Kentucky, Friday, Oct. 26.

KNWT nabbed three of the honors, including a first place award for Brianna Daniels for Best TV Special Event Coverage; second place honors for Nate Quick Best TV Entertainment Program, and an honorable mention for Max Moore for Best Viral Video.

“I’m very proud of all the students who are involved in KNWT productions,” said @Brett Peters, general manager of KNWT. “Their hard work is very encouraging as we go into the next school year. We just keep improving, and I’m excited to see what we can do next.”

The 2018 Tower Yearbook also snagged four national honors. Courtney Leinen earned a second place honor for Best Yearbook Division Page Spread; the staff placed second for Best Yearbook Feature Page Spread; and Emily Noyes took home two design awards, a third place honor for Best Yearbook News Page Spread and an honorable mention for Best Yearbook Sports Page Spread.

Finally, Ivory Lacina, the 2018 advertising graphics manager for the Northwest Missourian, won second place for Best Online Ad.

Northwest Missouri State University Director of Student Publications Steven Chappell said the awards validate the students’ hard work over the past year.

“Winning at a national level against schools with enrollments four or five times our size with much bigger budgets is very impressive,” Chappell said. “Additionally, these awards just add validation to our profession-based learning model, and show that our students leave here able to compete against anyone in the country for top-level media jobs.”

In addition to the student honors at the convention, Chappell was sworn in as treasurer for the national College Media Association board for a two-year term.
