2009 Bunn Award winners
This afternoon, your favorite student journalists got dressed up for the Bunn Awards, the annual ceremony in which the University picks the best articles published in campus newspapers over the past year. I’m pleased to report that the Voice bounced back from a humiliating softball defeat yesterday with a very solid Bunn performance, picking up 11 awards and sweeping the reviews and features categories.

While on the subject of student journalism awards, congrats to the Hoya‘s former Editor in Chief Andrew Dwulet and current managing editor, Marrissa Amendolia, for making UWire’s Top 100 student journalists! Dwulet was picked for “[putting] his own health on the line to cover an outbreak of contagious disease on campus” and Amendolia was honored for expanding the Guide from 12 pages to 16.
