The University of Notre Dames student-produced magazine, Scholastic, has been named 2005 Newsmagazine of the Year by the Indiana Collegiate Press Association.
A biweekly publication founded in 1867, Scholastic has received the award four of the last five years. This year it was honored on the strength of several first-place awards for photography and reporting, highlighted by an issue on the arts at Notre Dame, coverage of the departure of head football coach Tyrone Willingham, and an editorial disputing the idea that there is nothing to do inSouth Bend.
Scholastics co-editors were Michael Borgia ofPlymouth,Mass., and Ann Robinson ofAtherton,Calif., who also shared the Denny Moore Award for journalism, given annually by Notre Dames Office of Student Affairs in memory of the Universitys former spokesman.
Scholastic is funded by Notre Dames Student Activities Office.
