Winners of the
2002 Collegiate
Newspaper Contest


About 600 entries from ONPA Collegiate Member newspapers were judged in 22 categories, each in three divisions. (In some categories, divisions were combined due to the small numbers of entries.) Divisions are defined as follows:
Division 1: Four-year college; daily newspaper
Division 2: Four-year college; weekly, bi-weekly or monthly newspaper
Division 3: Two-year college; weekly, bi-weekly or monthly newspaper
