Skyline View Editor in Chief Michelle Kelly and Features Editor Dave Newlands shared third place for news story for an article they wrote about the media policy last semester.  Dave Newlands also picked up third place for photo illustration. Lea Naqishbendi, former TSV features editor, snagged second place for online photo story while News Editor Jeanita Lyman won second place for on-the-spot copy editing.

The 11 students who attended from Skyline College spanned a range of journalism courses and took workshops from a variety of professionals in media. They learned more about entrepreneurial journalism, sports writing outside of game play, social media to spread content, and current media law. Ian Hill, of Sacramento’s ABC News 10, gave the keynote. Joining Skyline College were community colleges from all over Northern California for the day-long conference.
