Our accolades include a first-place win for photography for Elena Medina’s  photo essay “Presenting Lady Rae Pavillion,” a first-place win for a web project for our piece, “What Veterans Day Means to These Montclair State Vets” and a second-place win in the same category for our parking package, “Parking at Montclair State: It’s All Packed Here.”

Both of these online projects were collaborative efforts involving work from many student reporters at the university.
