The Lutrinae takes on the CCMAs and wins awards

Although many emotions were felt at the California College Media Association Awards (CCMA) banquet in San Francisco on March 9-11, the Lutrinae staff still made the best of it while winning multiple awards. 

At the CCMAs, many schools come from all over to be acknowledged for their achievements and before the awards ceremony, students have the opportunity to attend different workshops. 

These workshops consist of different topics regarding the media and other things that may help provide information to students and their future careers.

The conference can also be used as a way to network and talk to professionals who might be able to assist aspiring journalists and build their resumé along with knowledge. 

The last day of the banquet consists of awards being passed out to those who were nominated, including two Lutrinae staff members, fourth-year editor-in-chief Arianna Nalbach and fourth-year production manager and webmaster Haley Graham. 

While the staff knew the names of who on the Lutrinae staff had won awards, they had no prior knowledge of how many awards Nalbach and Graham had won or what categories they had placed in.
Nalbach received second place for best photo series for her Ottum Fest photos and Graham received third place for best infographic for her infographic “Rules for smashing pumpkins,” best inside spread design, best overall newspaper design and best arts and entertainment story for “Monte’s Music spotlights planttvibes.”
