Chapter Honored with National SPJ Award
Last week, SPJ South Florida Pro was honored with the Circle of Excellence – Campus Relations and Scholarship award for the chapter’s involvement in campus events and scholarship activities. From the release:
The South Florida Pro chapter is honored in the Campus Relations and Scholarship category. During SPJ Ethics Week in April, the chapter sponsored a uniquely unethical event at Florida Atlantic University. The student newspaper, the University Press, was recreated as the Unethical Press. Student journalists enjoyed the chance to create a newspaper that was part satire, part lesson in the purpose of ethical journalism. In another creative program, 20 adventurous students convened to publish an issue of The Homeless Voice, sold on South Florida street corners by vendors who are homeless.
