Students Receive National Awards for UTEP Publications

Students from The University of Texas at El Paso earned national awards for their individual and collective work on The Prospector student newspaper and Minero Magazine, UTEP’s biannual student magazine.

The College Media Association (CMA) recently announced its Pinnacle Awards at its national fall convention in Atlanta, Georgia. UTEP students received six Pinnacle Awards, which included:

  • First Place – Best Newspaper Nameplate – The Prospector’s issue honoring the victims of the Paris attacks last November (Prospector staff).
  • Third Place – Best Display Ad – Hazing Prevention Week (Jacobo De La Rosa)
  • Third Place – Best Online Ad – Krispy Kreme – (Jacobo De La Rosa)
  • Honorable Mention – Best Sports Multimedia Story – The Team That Made History (Adrian Broaddus, Andres Martinez and Michaela Roman)
  • Honorable Mention – Best Editorial Cartoon – U.S. Border (Omar Hernandez)
  • Honorable Mention – Best Magazine News Page Spread – Measuring Up (Minero Magazine, Andres Martinez and Jacobo De La Rosa)

CMA’s Pinnacle Awards honor the best college media organizations and individual work. The contest is open to student work produced for any national college media organization, including print, broadcast and online outlets, during an academic year.

“It’s a team effort,” said Michaela Roman, editor-in-chief of The Prospector and senior digital media production and multimedia journalism double major. “Working in student media teaches you how to meet deadlines and work efficiently with each other. I’m glad our hard work was able to pay off and we could represent UTEP nationally.”

In addition to the CMA Pinnacle Awards, UTEP students also won two Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) Pacemaker awards during the ACP National College Media Convention in Washington, D.C.

Pacemaker Award nominees are judged by teams of professionals based on coverage and content, quality of writing and reporting, leadership, design, photography and graphics. UTEP students received two Pacemaker Awards:

  • Third place – Story of the Year – Multimedia Sports Story – The Team That Made History (Adrian Broaddus, Andres Martinez and Michaela Roman)
  • Eighth place – Design Pacemaker Award for Magazine Spread – Measuring Up (Minero Magazine, Andres Martinez and Jacobo De La Rosa)

“The fact that these awards are national awards means our students are competing against the best of the best in college media,” said Kathleen Flores, director of UTEP’s student media and publications. “The ACP Pacemaker awards are considered the Pulitzer Prizes of student journalism, and I am extremely proud of these students’ accomplishments and that they are receiving national recognition for their hard work.”
