Diversity, labour reporting awards
among student journalists
Two new student journalism awards sponsored
by CWA Canada were a big hit at the annual conference of
the Canadian University Press.
The contests for diversity and labour reporting drew a large
number of entries, says Michael D'Souza, director of human
rights at the CBC branch of the Canadian Media Guild, the
national union's largest Local.
He was on hand at the gathering in Edmonton on the weekend
to present the $500 prizes to the two winners (runners up
got magazine subscriptions).
