Advocate Newspaper Wins 15 Awards
The Advocate, your source of MHCC news and entertainment, is pleased to announce it brought home 15 awards at the Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association’s 2014 Collegiate Day on Friday, racking up three more awards than last year.
Some of the honors include second-place General Excellence honors, based on judges' cover-to-cover assessment of three complete issues; first place Best Section and Best Website; and second place Best Design.
