The Anoka-Ramsey Community College student newspaper, InkSpot, took top honors at the Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) Best of the Midwest competition in mid-February, receiving the first place Best of Show award for two-year colleges. The college’s Coon Rapids Campus student newspaper, Rampage, took second place in the same category.
“We had great student involvement for the semester we were judged on,” said the paper’s editor, Anoka-Ramsey student Adam Holte. “And a lot of credit for this recognition goes to the paper’s graphic designer, Chris M. Dugan.”
ACP’s Best of the Midwest conference brings together student newspaper journalists and advisers from a region ranging from the Dakotas to Indiana. This is the second year Anoka-Ramsey student publications have received honors at the conference.
