In addition to recently publishing their first hard-copy newspaper since February 2020, The Skyline View won numerous awards at this semester’s Journalism Association of Community Colleges NorCal Regional Conference, held at Los Positas College Oct. 22.
Former opinions editor Zachary Navarra clinched two first-place awards, one for photo illustration and one for opinion story, while also picking up an honorable mention for another opinion story he wrote. Former editors Izzy Herrera and Andrea St. Domingo took home a first-place win for an informational graphic they collaborated on. Former editor Adriana Hernandez won two second-place awards–one for editorial cartoon and the other for illustration—and a fourth-place win for feature story. Former EIC Steven Rissotto earned a third-place win for column writing and an honorable mention for profile feature story. The paper as a whole took home both a third-place award and an honorable mention for its editorials. Former reporter Isaac Camacho earned an honorable mention for a critical review he wrote.
But perhaps the most exhilarating award of the day for The Skyline View was the first-place win for on-the-spot social media story, an award the entirely new TSV crew earned by covering the conference event itself through TSV social media channels on Instagram, Twitter and TikTok (@theskylineview).
