The Hatchet wins four awards in regional competition

The Society of Professional Journalists recognized The Hatchet with four awards at the annual collegiate journalism competition last week.

The Hatchet won first place in the following categories:

General news reporting at large: Complaints filed against unlicensed counseling director by Ellie Smith

Sports writing at large: A team and a school unite in a championship by Nora Princiotti

Editorial writing: GW Hatchet staff editorials by The GW Hatchet Staff

General column writing at large: Melissa Holzberg

The winners in each category in the region — which includes Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia and D.C. — will compete at the national competition against other first-place winners from 12 regions. National winners will be announced in late spring at the Excellence in Journalism conference in Anaheim, Calif.
