The Mountain Laurel: Finalist for Associated Collegiate Press Award

North Greenville University’s The Mountain Laurel, a literary publication, has been named a finalist in the Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) Annual Newspaper and Magazine Pacemaker Contest.

“This is only our second year entering, and we are extremely excited to be recognized in this way,” said Dr. Deborah Deciantis, faculty advisor for The Mountain Laurel.   

The Magazine Pacemaker awards recognize general excellence in collegiate magazines and are divided into two categories: Feature and Literary magazines. This year, the Feature magazines were judged by The Atlantic and the Literary magazines were judged by professional journalists at Quintessence Publishing Co.

Entries are judged based on the following criteria: Content, quality of writing and editing, photography, art and graphics, layout and design, and overall concept or theme.

Winners will be announced for the first time at the 90th Annual ACP/CMA National College Media Convention in Orlando on Saturday, October 29.
