BRADFORD, Pa. – The Source, the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s student newspaper, has taken first place in the American Scholastic Press Association national competition.

This is the first time the newspaper has been awarded first place in a decade.

Universities across the country competed in the contest and were judged by enrollment. The Source was entered in the category for schools with enrollments of 1,001 to 1,700.

Based on excellence in design, layout, photography and reporting, the judges awarded The Source 930 of a possible 1,000 points.

The 15-member staff made up of editors, reporters and photographers, produced six editions of the 12-page, full-color newspaper during the fall 2008 term, including a 4-page “Election Extra” supplement in October.

“Getting a first-place award says something about the staff of writers and photographers,” said editor Alex Davis, a sophomore public relations major from Emporium. “This is another example of what hard work can accomplish. We have set the bar for Pitt-Bradford’s newspaper, and that commitment to excellence will continue.”

Tim Ziaukas, faculty advisor and associate professor of public relations, said, “The hard-working staff of The Source deserves to be congratulated for its improvements to the newspaper. This acknowledgement by the ASPA underscores the achievements of this team, especially Alex.”

In addition to Davis, members of the editorial staff included Tom Gibbons, assistant editor, a business management major from Lebanon, N.J.; Jessica Hamilton, copy editor, a writing major from Wilcox; and Josh Gray, editorial assistant, a broadcast communications major from St. Charles, Ill.

Reporters included Jerry Beichner, a public relations major from Emporium; Laurie Craft, a public relations major from Bradford; Kevin Erdelack, a writing major from Cheswick; Jason Fetterman, a writing major from Bradford; Shawna Hardy, a public relations major from Wampum; Eric Hund, a public relations major from Great Valley, N.Y.; Brittany Linderman, a public relations major from Allegany, N.Y.; Brandy Patrick, a writing major from Rew; Shane Phillips an elementary education and writing major from Ellicottville, N.Y.; Luke Vaughn, a broadcast communications major from Ludlow, and Alyssa Villano, a public relations major from Clarks Summit.

The Source also took second place in the ASPA contest last year.
