HIRE THESE PEOPLE…

Meet the best college journalists in the Southeast. That’s Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina.

How do I know they’re the best? Because they’re the Region 3 winners in SPJ’s college annual journalism contest, called the Mark of Excellence. They’ll compete nationally against their peers in 11 other regions, with SPJ announcing those results in May.

So hiring editors, take note of these names…
