Media students from the Savannah College of Art and Design have received a record breaking number of awards recognizing student achievements.
SCAD Savannah student media, which includes District, District Quarterly, Port City Review, and SCAD Radio, received 108 awards for the 2012-2013 academic year. This is record-breaking number of awards across all of the programs, according to a news release.
Students received awards from the Associated College Press, the College Media Association, the Savannah chapter of the American Advertising Federation Addy Awards and the Georgia Collegiate Press Association.
"SCAD pushes its students to collaborate across majors, and that, coupled with
students' innate abilities to think visually, allows student media to produce
content that is often beyond the realm of traditional media," said Allison
Dyche, assistant director of student media, in a statement.
District earned a gold medal from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association for the District website and first place from the Society of Professional Journalists' National Mark of Excellence Awards.
District was also named a finalist for the National Scholastic Press Association Online Pacemaker Award.
