STLCC-Meramec Montage Named ACP Pacemaker Finalist

September 09, 2009

The Montage, St. Louis Community College-Meramec's student newspaper, was selected by the Associated Collegiate Press as one of 10 finalists in the 2009 two-year school division category of the Newspaper Pacemaker competition. Since 1927, the Pacemaker has been the highest honor available to ACP members.

Finalists were selected by a panel from The Poynter Institute, based on excellence in coverage and content, quality of writing and reporting, leadership on the opinion page, evidence of in-depth reporting, layout/design and photography, art and graphics.

Winners will be announced at the ACP/CMA National College Media Convention Oct. 31 in Austin, Texas. Six Montage staff members will attend the conference, accompanied by the faculty adviser.

Each year, The Montage competes against several other two-year school newspapers from across the country, including student newspapers from two of the other STLCC campuses.

The Montage was inducted into the ACP Pacemaker Hall of Fame in 1988, awarded a national Pacemaker in 1991 and 1996, and named as national finalists in 2003 and 2007.

In addition to national recognition, The Montage consistently has received individual awards from the Missouri College Media Association, including Best Overall Newspaper in the two-year school division.
