The Tucson Weekly wishes to extend congratulations to the staff of Pima Community College's Aztec Press. In the Oct. 1 Media Watch, the Arizona Newspapers Association 2015 Better Newspapers Contest awards given to this student newspaper were left out. The newspaper won Best Use of Photography: Second place; Reporting and Newswriting Excellence: Third place; and
Community Service/Journalistic Achievement: Third place. PCC journalism instructor Cynthia Lancaster told us that because there is no college category, the staff competed in the Division 2 professional category: Non-daily circulation 3,500 to 10,000. "Aztec Press is a student publication, but we hold staffers to professional standards. They are talented and hard working, and surely deserve recognition for a job well done," Lancaster wrote. We've had wonderful interns from Lancaster work at the Tucson Weekly, and we've hired a few of them too. We completely agree. Again, apologies for the omission, and a big congratulations.
