LAS VEGAS – The Society of Professional Journalists has recognized the Ohio University Chapter with its Campus Program of the Year award. It was chosen from a select group of campus chapters by SPJ’s 12 regional coordinators for its outstanding work in supporting the Society’s mission, members and journalism.

Ohio University is being recognized for its program “Breaking News Simulation.” The program was a free simulated news event for student journalists to experience what it’s like to report on a breaking news event. Students were given multiple ethical dilemmas and a red herring storyline to navigate. They were also judged by their journalism professors at the end of the event.

Ohio University was honored at the Collegiate Excellence Awards at the SPJ23 Journalism Convention in Las Vegas.
