Index Receives State and National Awards

The Index was recently recognized with three prominent awards.

Missouri College Media Association named the Index the best college newspaper in the state. At the MCMA awards ceremony on April 2, the Index received more than a dozen awards, including first place in Division Two and Best in State. The Index defeated nearly 30 schools to clinch the title, including University of Missouri-Columbia, Missouri State University and Northwest Missouri State University. Last year, the Index placed second in its division.

The Index also won first place at the Society of Professional Journalists regional competition for best four-year non-daily newspaper. The region consists of Missouri, Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska. The award, known as the Mark of Excellence Award, was presented in Overland Park, Kan., the weekend of April 9.

The College Media Advisers also awarded the Index third place in the national Apple Awards in New York City March 15.

The Index competed with nearly 30 schools to place third nationally at the CMA Apple Awards. The Index has placed first at the Apple Awards five times since 2003, most recently in 2010.
