HPU newspaper wins national awards

Kalamalama again ranked with top college papers

by Kalamalama staff

For the seventh straight year, Kalamalama, the HPU newspaper, received a top national award and a national First Place with Special Merit Award that placed it among the top- seven college newspapers in the nation, overall.  
 

The American Scholastic Press Association, which services 2,000 schools and colleges nationwide, awarded Kalamalama the “Most Outstanding News Photograph” for Business Manager Jaclynn Fasken’s overhead photo of Honolulu police removing motorcycles from a campus bicycle parking area.

 

The judges said that Kalamalama “is a window into your school” that has “succeeded in showcasing the best your students have to offer.”

 

Last year, Kalamalama won two top awards, one for “Most Outstanding Community Service Reporting” for its coverage of the Sept. 11 attacks, and a second for “Most Outstanding Overall Photography.” The community service award was Kalamalama’s third consecutive award in that category. Kalamalama won “Best Investigative Reporting” in 1997, and in 1999 it won “Most Outstanding College Newspaper.”
 
The HPU newspaper has won a National First Place with Special Merit Award in the American Scholastic Press top division—colleges and universities with more than 2,500 students—every year since 1997.
 
In other contests, Kalamalama won second place for best student feature writing from the Hawai‘i chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists for Reenie Young Rea’s article on Honolulu’s garbage to energy and recycling programs.
